BIOS update with Linux Mint

Updating your BIOS on Linux Mint 19 can be as easy as on Windows. If your computer is listed on the Linux Vendor Firmware Service, then all you have to do is:

~ $ sudo apt install fwupd
~ $ fwupdmgr get-updates
~ $ fwupdmgr update

The firmware-manager might even get included in the next version of Linux Mint 20.
