Firmware updates for Canon EOS R6

Dear sir/madam,

I am using Canon R6 from last few years. I cannot update the firmware after 1.6.0. I tried installing 1.6.0 to 1.7.0 and it failed at the end stage of installation. I have downloaded 1.8.1 and 1.8.2 as well. But cannot proceed for unbaling to install 1.7.0, despite following the instructions. 

Please help.

Have  you done a previous update of the firmware yourself, or is this the first time?
What method are you using to do the download and unpacking, and if using a computer to download and unpack, what operating system please?


cheers, TREVOR

When you unpack the downloaded file are you placing the file with suffix .fir in the root directory of your card?
