downloaded the tar archive and extracted it to a temp location, from a terminal I executed the following file in the extracted folder,
the binary file was installed and I was instructed to reboot.
However, I don’t see any changes in the firmware after reboot,
$ modinfo i915
license: GPL and additional rights
description: Intel Graphics

my guc is still at v9.14 which is I had earlier reported in this thread.
Am I missing something?
[EDIT] this is what I get when I install the firmware, its warns of several missing files, but still reports of a successful installation,
$ sudo ./install.sh
