I'm trying to update my BIOS. When I click OK in the dialogue box the dialogue box keeps popping up/looping and never installs/updates the BIOS.
My AC adapter is plugged in.

How can I get the BIOS to update/install?

I already downloaded it. I double click it, opens the update/installer, then a Caution dialog box pops up saying to make sure my ac adapter is plugged in click OK or Cancel. Every time I click OK that dialog box keeps popping up. I have my ac adapter plugged in.
I've only seen results for the updater software that implies it for use for HP computers

Can you check your latest BIOS like this

It seems that the BIOS you're trying update is one from 2018, like 3 years late. I think it maybe it has the latest already
It was downloaded right off the official Dell website. You even posted a screenshot. Its for Dell systems. My system has BIOS version A12 installed the one available for download is A16 update

This is really odd, have you turned your AV off for temps sake? It may see it as something trying to change the BIOS maliciously
