    Come to think of it. Did you have secure boot turned on in the BIOS ? if so, turn it off then try to update your BIOS again.

    Apparently it was turned on. I'm not able to disable it, it's grayed out.

    Do you have any idea how I can access it?

    Okay, I was able to disable it.

    I had to go in the boot device menu to 'Boot' and set 'Fast Boot' to disabled. Doing it from the control panel is not enough apparently.
    I also had to change 'Boot mode select' from 'UEFI' to 'UEFI with CSM', then restart the system.

    After all that, Secure Boot is now Disabled.

    Secure Boot is a pain. It's very well-intentioned, but it makes booting from flash drives much more difficult. I find booting from flash to install Windows is much faster than using a CD/DVD, but UEFI and Secure Boot involves the extra step of disabling Secure Boot--with its glaring warnings about doing so. It works, but it's a pain nevertheless.
