Missing firmware files during installation

Just started the installation of Kali Linux on an Hp Elitebook Folio 9740m Laptop and during the installation I got the message:

"Some of your hardware needs non-free firmware files to operate. The firmware can be loaded from removable media such as a USB stick or floopy.

The missing firmware files are: regulatory.db iwl-debug-yoyo.bin…"

I have searched for this firmware but no luck. Can anyone help me please??

Hi Newbie2021,

Welcome to our forums.

This should be a bug in the installer media, so you can skip this step during installation. When the installation is complete, run the following:

sudo apt dist-upgrade

Thank you so much- I ignored and performed an update/upgrade on the box and everything is working like a dream.
