OK so the 2.1.8 firmware would not affect the functionality of my OS 2.3 DC. But because I have received, and I keep on receiving it, the notification in the app about the firmware update I was going to do it.

Next time I’ll have to apply a firmware update I’ll try the way you’ve suggested me (alternative updater). But reading the firmware update guide it seemed clear to me that the main way to update the “OpenSprinkler 2.x (with Ethernet jack)” through a computer with Linux was:
– download the software clicking the “Linux 64-bit” button;
– install it (my problem was how to do it);
– run the program as root using sudo in order to gain USB permissions.
Maybe could be good to adapt the text of this webpage making clear that people who use Linux have to use the alternative updater.

Thanks and bye.
