Support Assist noreply@dell.com

I got an email from Support Assist at noreply@dell.com regarding one of my servers.

Could someone explain to me if this is a normal thing to get automated attempts from supportassit on a server?

And if it's normal to also get email alerts form it? Thanks!

I received the same email. It sure isn't very helpful. I can see it tells me I need to upgrade OMSA. Did that. Now what?

Yup, I got the same email too. "Cryptic" does not even begin to explain it. Dell, please explain to us what you want us to do. If I go into the server and open up the SupportAssist app and check communication, etc. to Dell servers, no error message results whatsoever.
