Make sure you have a fully charged battery, the camera will not allow an update if it thinks the battery is too low.
Also the update must be on the primary card if you have cards in both slots. It would also work if the CF is the only card even if the XQD is designated as the primary.
Also make sure the BIN file for the update is in the root directory of the card. It cannot be inside any folder.
