I keep getting the same chipset update in Dell Support Assistant. How do I stop receiving the same updates?
Received this update download Oct 10 2016:
Received the same one today, these are the details:
As you will notice, they are the same! I installed it twice and restarted my computer both times. So why do I keep getting a notice for the same chipset?
I do apologize for the inconvenience but this is a known issue and many teams are working on this to come up with a solution. It’s not a SupportAssist application issue. Even if you were to navigate to the web-site the same issue would happen. Without getting to technical the basic issue resides in the inventory control process where the compare is happening – WMI files are not being updated with the new version at package level, creates a mismatch in the inventory control piece and continuously shows the customer that they need to install the driver.
I believe the Drives and Downloads team has reach out to Intel and working with other internal teams to come up with a resolution. I do not have a timeframe when this will get fixed at this time but I'll update this post when I hear more information

Thank you! I'm not real technical, but I am sure that it takes time to figure out these types of issues. I will patiently wait for a solution. I guess, I'll just ignore it from now on.
Kudos to HighlandSecy2016 for being polite and patient and JoeB for honestly stating the problem on behalf of Dell. It is refreshing to see a company rep not beating around the bush and admitting to a problem. Overall, I like SupportAssist so the odd glitch is not a big deal once it is understood.
