Dell Firmware update fails with "mktemp: too many templates"

If you have the following error while updating a Dell server firmware (BIOS, RAID, etc) via Linux binary (*.BIN) :
 mktemp: too many templates  

Then check the binary's filename for specials characters, in my case Chrome added a "(1)" at the end of the filename. Remove it, restart the update process and you're good to go !
