Error When Trying to Install FIRMWARE-AMD-GRAPHICS

I am trying to fix the many W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/amdgpu/navy_flounder_dmcub.bin for module amdgpu messages when performing an update

This led me to via Aravisian help to install firmware-amd-graphics_20210818-1_all.deb which I hope is the right package from this FTP site http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/f/firmware-free/

When trying to install firmware-amd-graphics package I get
error while trying installing trying to overwrite
/lib/firmware/amdgpu/banks_k_2_smc.bin which is also in package linux-firmware 1.187.27


I would use this link, instead. The one you linked to directs to Debian, not Ubuntu
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/amdgpu
You can use git

sudo apt install git

and clone directly:

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git

Then elevate to root and move the files directly into /lib/firmware/amdgpu

sudo -i

nautilus

Do I need to use ftp to get these files downloaded and if so which ftp client would you suggest.
I done the clone so ready for step 3 Then elevate to root and move the files directly into /lib/firmware/amdgpu

You do not need FTP as you are already set up on Zorin OS. You can clone the files just as your following statement suggests you have already done so, :wink:

Once you move the files (Which you can also do with the terminal using the mv command, if you prefer over the GUI), in terminal please test with

sudo apt update

sudo apt update
