Ugh, I really should update my BIOS on my laptop. It's only a few months old but the BIOS that it came with is one of the earliest revisions. This is possibly the ONE area that running Linux full-time is a problem. And only if you use a laptop not supported by fwupd. Sadly, Acer haven't joined LVFS and only offer BIOS updates as .exe files... so I will have to try one of the many alternative methods as posted on the Arch Linux wiki.
(This was a Twitter thread that I reposted here because I figured some folks may have similar experiences and be able to offer tips/tricks?)
