Hi i try to update BIOS on my PL8820 and see this error
Extracting image
Running install.sh

BIOS upgrade from B272 to B282.


The upgrade will try and power cycle the system the next time a reboot is
scheduled. It's highly recommended to reboot the system after the upgrade
is done.

Type 'yes' to proceed with BIOS upgrade, or 'no' to abort: yes
