fwupd is a daemon to allow session software to update device firmware.
You can either use a GUI software manager like GNOME Software to view and
apply updates, the command-line tool or the system D-Bus interface directly.
Currently, firmware updates using the UEFI capsule format and for the
ColorHug are supported. More formats may be supported in the future.
See <https://github.com/hughsie/fwupd> for details
