Just the title confused me ... is it a K-1 with 2 exclamation marks or a K-1 MKII ?

Anyway, my K-1 (with no exclamation marks) updated fine.

You have probably hit the nail on the head here!

At first glance it looks like K1 with two exclamation marks but I think you are correcet, the reality is that those two exclamation marks are a 'typo' by the OP.

It just goes to show how easy it is to get it wrong by taking things at face value
That's three exclamation marks.. lol..

My camera firmware is 1.02 and I have never updated since then. Is that a reson why I cannot update it now?

Shouldn't be, a new update supersedes and updates all prev firmware upgrades

Judging by the signature, it is a K-1ii.

Are you copying the unzipped file to the card, or the zipped one? If you are copying the zipped one it won't work.
