A sudo apt clean before upgrading it doesn’t change anything.

A few hours before the listing of the linux firmware update I installed the VirtualBox:

me@MYCOMPUTER:~$ apt search virtualbox | grep installed
virtualbox/jammy,now 6.1.32-dfsg-1 amd64 [installed]
virtualbox-dkms/jammy,now 6.1.32-dfsg-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
virtualbox-ext-pack/jammy,jammy,now 6.1.32-1 all [installed]
virtualbox-qt/jammy,now 6.1.32-dfsg-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]

Maybe the installation of VirtualBox is the cause to the error?

Interesstingly the linux firmware was installed right now… but it looks like a different deb file was downloaded
