    Good Morning PRANAVJHA !

    Acer does not provide support for Linux systems in this series, only for Windows 10.
    For several years now, Bios updates are only available via .EXE files and no longer under FlashBios.

    The question is, does your device really need any Bios update?

    Acer's question of providing a device with whatever operating system does not require Acer to support any system.
    Each user is free to use the system they like best.
    When the user agrees to the license, he is aware of it.
    The issue of updating refers more to knowledge than to Acer itself.
    You can simply update the micro-codes in the shell or use FreeDOS on a bootable flash drive.

    tell me which distro you support officailly??

    I do not support any operating system or any specific distribution.
    I believe that every system, as well as each distribution has its own functions and characteristics that suit the needs of each user.
    I use a multi-boot system:
    Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
    Windows 10 Pro
    Kubuntu 19.04 Dingo Disc
    Debian 9 Stretch
    Kali Linux 2019.2
    Parrot Security OS 4.4
