I formatted the GoPro8 SD card as "MS-DOS (FAT32), copied only the UPDATE file to this newly formated SD, did the upgrade and again got a "check mark" successful upgrade on the GoPro screen.  But again, firmware says 1.60.  Attached is what the SD card looks like..

 


     if there is no update folder to your driver sd card then  you are not doing it right.   Also I am not a Mac user .

Where did you go wrong?  Which step did you miss that others should follow?
