My Hero 5 Black is currently v2.51. I have been trying to update it to the v2.6 which has been available for some time.I have tried 3 different sd cards, 2 different batteries both fully charged.
The update will load onto the sd cards via the Gopro Quik app, but when put back into the camera it will not update.
Any thoughts please as I am getting very frustrated
Thank You in anticipation

I have no idea what the issue is with your GoPro but I can tell you my experience with updating my Olympus cameras.  Firmware updates stopped working for me a couple of years ago until I tried to use a different computer. Then all updates worked again. I suggested it to a friend who also had problems with firmware updates and it worked for him also. I can't explain why/how it worked but it did.  It may not work for your GoPro but from my experience, it's worth a shot.

All I know ver 2.51 is the latest version as well. I was helping a buddy installing the headache rack and roll n lock tonneau covers on his truck to fit the ATV on the bed when we set the Go pro cameras as well. 2.51 is the latest update version he got.
