Package: fwupd
  C: fwupd
  C: Update device firmware on Linux
  C: >-
          This project aims to make updating firmware on Linux automatic, safe and
          You can either use a GUI software manager like GNOME Software to view and
          apply updates, the command-line tool or the D-Bus interface directly.
          The fwupd process is a simple daemon to allow session software to update
          device firmware on your local machine.
          It is designed for desktops, but this project is also usable on phones,
          tablets and on headless servers.
