Is it safe to update my laptop's firmware?

I recently saw this was available in the software store, but I am wondering if it is safe to update the device firmware. Is the update atomic?
I am on Zorin OS 16.2 Core btw

Should be safe, as long as you don't touch the keyboard as it's updating, you don't lose power mid-update, or don't get impatient and turn it off mid-update.

You're lucky... my firmware isn't in fwupdate, no updates available, and HP's (Windows-specific) firmware update process is so broken that I can't get the firmware to recognize its own update, despite putting all the right files in all the right places and following the procedure for Linux firmware updates on HP machines to the letter.
