Bug#968997: fwupdmgr: "Successfully" updates BIOS firmware, no effect on reboot

Package: fwupd
Followup-For: Bug #968997
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian@rocketjump.eu

Hi again,

today I was offered an upgrade to 0.1.69, and that update ran through without
problems. So it seems as though the 0.1.68 update was faulty for some reason. If
the faulty update was rejected by the firmware, it would be at least nice to get
notified as the user. But I don't know fwupdmgr well enough to say if that's
something the running system firmware gives feedback on.

As a result I'm lowering the severity to wishlist.
