I have the latest version of RPCS3 and PS3s firmware, but when I try to install the firmware it says that the PUP contents are invalid. I'm on Linux and my specs are I7 6700k, integrated GPU and 8 GB of 3000mhz RAM. If anybody needs more info I'll try to provide it.
Maybe the file is corrupt. Try downloading it again.

Already tried it, after seeing your comment I even tried a third time, it made no difference.

so i tried ver 4.76
and successed install without any problem

ver 4.76 firmware link here
strange, i've used the 09-24-17 release of rpcs3, and the latest PS3UPDAT.PUP file from the playstation website multiple times (had to test some stuff), and its worked just fine for me

maybe the copy of rpcs3 you got is corrupted somehow? delete what you got (rpcs3 and the ps3 firmware update file) and grab a fresh copy from this website here, and a fresh ps3 firmware file from the playstation website, and then reply back when you're done
I'm new to RPCS3. I'm having the very same issue mentioned. I have downloaded the newest current build of RPCS3 (twice now) and have downloaded official PS3 firmware version 4.82 five times now.

I also notice there is another issue with the database file.
