We understand you would like to update the firmware on the SSD, but, according to documentation, you need to got step by step.
First of all, we would like to know if this drive is a generic drive or if it came from a particular system manufacturer, this may actually change a lot. If the drive is generic, the only thing you need to do is to download the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool, from this link and run the command to update the firmware, the commands are available here, page 35.
Now, if the drive is an OEM drive, then you need to contact the manufacturer in order to get the proper tool to upgrade the firmware on it (Our tool does not work on OEM drives).
Please let us know if the drive is OEM and if you know the name of the manufacturer so we can further assist you on this.
