Can't find EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens on Canon website

Greetings! I picked up a used Canon lens recently and I've been trying to find out if it needs a firmware update or if it's too old for that. The problem is I can't find this specific lens in the Canon drop-downs when trying to pick it from the list they provide. The lens in question is the Canon Zoom Lens EF 70-200mm 1:2.8 L IS USM. I can find variations of this lens, such as an RF mount version, but I can't find this exact lens. Everything on the website is at least slightly different. Anyone know how to locate this lens firmware, or if it indeed is updatable via firmware? When I attach the lens and view the firmware versions on my camera, the menu system doesn't show a lens choice for firmware like it does with other updatable lenses. Is it too old for that or is it because the lens is connected to the EF-RF adapter and not directly to the camera? Thanks in advance.

That lens came out in 1995. It won't be on the main site anymore, but it's on the support section of the site. Firmware won't be available for the lens, but for the RF adapter.

Here is the info on the lens: https://www.usa.canon.com/support/p/ef-70-200mm-f-2-8l-is-usm
