upgrade does not work

When I connect the camera (Hero 7 Black) to the Go Pro app (on Huawei (20 Pro) I can control the camera and see the camera screen, so that connection works OK. However, ithe app then suggests I should upgrade the camera's firmware. When I attempt to do this the app says I am not connected to the Internet and suggests I change Wifi network, which when completed of course disconnects the camera so the upgrade fails. How can the upgrade be completed when the app appears to need to be connected by wifi to both the camera and the internet at the same time?

 

Regards

 

Jim
