EOS R7 firmware update

I just purchased this camera and installed the canon app on my smart phone.  The app updated to the new firmware and i connected it to my camera via Bluetooth.  The phone transferred the firmware to my camera.  The camera asked me to update firmware from1.0.1 to 1.1.0 but it grayed out the OK.  Where do I go from here?

Thank you very much...  I am not familiar with all the controls yet.

For anyone else Googling the same issue and arriving at this useless and patronising RTFM response, the actual solution is:

"It is to protect accidental 'OK' selection so the touch and wheel function are disabled. You must press the 'Right' direction (i.e. 3 o'clock on the wheel) and it will "light" up the OK".

From https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63385844

After the OK button is active, you'll need to confirm the OK by pressing the Set button.  Touching the screen button won't work.

There is a video at the link that walks you through it.
