FIM and BMC firmware version issue when upgrade Intel OneAPI 2021.2.0.2883 (latest version)

FGPA FIM and BMC firmware version is not updated when install OneAPI base kit 2021.2.0.2883

I just try to upgrade my OneAPI base kit version 2021.1 beta 6 to 2021.2.0.2883 with intel FPGA addon . After installing the base kit and addon, I try to run

aocl install intel_a10gx_pac

 in order to install intel PAC software stack for my 2 intel arria 10gx PAC in the same machine. Unfortunately, it failed because the FIM and BMC firmware version is not updated to the targeted FIM version 38d782e3-b612-5343-b934-2433e348ac4c. here is the output from command fpgainfo fme:

//****** FME ******//

From the output, we can see the FIM verison is 69528db6-eb31-577a-8c36-68f9faa081f6 which is one version older than the target which caused the failure.

Would someone give me some hints why the firmware update fails when running aocl install intel_a10gx_pac and how the firmware can be upgraded to the target version properly?
