Hi, I have a Dell XPS 13 and used fwupdmgr in Ubuntu to update my firmware. Now I am using Solus and tried to install fwupd with snap, i.e. as root user (or with sudo):

Code: Select all

snap install uefi-fw-tools
snap connect uefi-fw-tools:fwupdmgr uefi-fw-tools:fwupd
uefi-fw-tools.fwupdmgr refresh
uefi-fw-tools.fwupdmgr get-devices
However, the only thing it finds is:

Code: Select all

XPS 13 9360
  Guid:                 5ff..................
  DeviceID:             UEFI-5ff........
  Provider:             UEFI
  Flags:                internal|allow-offline|require-ac|supported
  Version:              0.2.4.2
  VersionLowest:        0.2.4.2
  Created:              2018-01-23
What am I missing?
