Looking at the image you posted to Imgur, it looks like the system is crashing during the attempt to run through the firmware update. With that being the case, I would try first draining the power by unplugging the server, then holding the power button down for around 30 seconds. Once that is done, you can flash the firmware using the .iso linked below. That .iso should have the updates to the iDRAC and Lifecycle controller. That should help fix the error you're getting.
No, the system booted, but it looks like there is a problem with the update script. Is an OS installed on the server at present? If so, what is it? We may be able to update from there, depending on the operating system.
This may not work, due to the specific OS, but it may be worth a try anyway. These are the bin files for the BIOS, iDRAC, and Lifecycle controller. They haven't been validated in the Ubuntu family, so the applications may not run, but worth a try.
BMC 1.70 (If no iDRAC): https://downloads.dell.com/esm/BMC_FRMW_LX_R295870.BIN
Lifecycle Controller 1.7.5: https://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER02971948M/1/Lifecycle-Controller_Legacy_Application_0WFGM_LN_1.7.5....
I managed to open the file using command the command line and everything is fine with it.
Thank you a lot for your help.
