Hi,

I have installed Intel Acceleration Stack for Runtime v1.2.1 and OPAE package successfully. But when I want to update the FIM and BMC firmware, I met the following problem.

I run the command

sudo fpgaotsu /usr/share/opae/a10*/fpgaotsu/base/otsu-09C4.json

then the error occurred.

Have you attached a USB cable to Arria 10 PAC during FIM and BMC upgrade.

You can refer to page 39 below for upgrading FIM and BMC.
