As deloptes said, this is not related: the "missing firmware" notice means that the operating system has detected a hardware (ath10k, that's the WiFi) which could use some firmware (but perhaps works fine without). The firmware itself is non-free, that's why it is in a separate package. I think deloptes already said how to find/install it. > Do you also recommend updating my BIOS? I don't know. There are others around here with more experience in that than me.
