[RESPONDED] F13 AMD 7040 fprintd says to update firmware, but none available

I’m trying to set up my fingerprint on my new Framework 13 (which I love so far, admittedly). I’ve got Gentoo up and running and installed fprintd but it’s telling me to update my fingerprint reader’s firmware

failed to claim device: GDBus.Error:net.reactivated.Fprint.Error.Internal: Open failed with error: Please update firmware using fwupd```

However, `fwupdmgr update` tells me

```Devices with no available firmware updates:
 • Fingerprint Sensor``` even though it did just work to update the BIOS.

Anyone have any clues as to what the issue is?
