WD15 firmware version and upgrade from Linux

Hi,

Is there any way to read out version of firmware on wd15 docking station from linux?

Is there any way to update firmware of the wd15 docking station from linux or bios?

Does instruction https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/SLN171755/updating-the-dell-bios-in-linux-and-ubuntu-e...

work for wd15 firmwares or is that only for laptop bios?

if instruction works do I need to use seperate wd15 firmware

or one bundled with windows driver package

* Unknown. You would have to ask the users on the Linux board.

This article is not meant the WD15 dock. Only computers.

The WD15 firmware update Version 1.0.0.8 84W5N can only be run from a computer with Windows 7/8.1/10 that is connected to the WD15.
