Dell Command | Update Version 2.0 User's Guide

Dependency Installation

Dell Command | Update uses update packages to determine the latest updates for a system. An update package contains feature enhancements or changes in BIOS, firmware, drivers, and software. In most cases, the update is self-sufficient and executes the pre-installation and applicable dependencies. If the existing update on the system is an old version, it may have to be upgraded to a recent version before it is updated to the recommended version. You can check for upgrades of the update using Dell Command | Update until the recommended version is installed.

For example, consider that your system has version A01 of BIOS installed and version A05 is available for update. But, to update to A05 you must first update the system to version A03.  Dell Command | Update updates the system to version A03 before upgrading it to version A05.
  • NOTE: If the update you want to install has a dependency, Dell Command | Update notifies you during the update process with an information alert.
