You need to do it from within the OS.


Code:
sudo nano /etc/default/rpi-eeprom-update
then change from critical to stable
Code:
sudo apt update
sudo rpi-eeprom-update -a
sudo reboot now
and then afterward you can check if the bootloader has been updated w/
Code:
[email protected]:~ $ sudo vcgencmd bootloader_version

For some reasons, some SATA adapter cause issues. But there is a fix. You'll need to modify the /boot/cmdline.txt file a bit.
Code:
[email protected]:/boot $ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 152d:0578 JMicron Technology Corp. / JMicron USA Technology Corp. JMS567 SATA 6Gb/s bridge
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1d50:6029 OpenMoko, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 2c99:0002 
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2109:3431 VIA Labs, Inc. Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
In my case its the first line.

Code:
[email protected]:/boot $ sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt
And then I take the ID for the USB SATA bridge, in my case its 152d:0578 and add usb-storage.quirks=152d:0578:u to the file.
Code:
usb-storage.quirks=152d:0578:u console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=d34db33f-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait
Reboot and it should be faster.
