changing timout in efibootmgr

ca flag

On command-line I issued the command: sudo efibootmgr --timeout 30

This did not work, and the reported error is: "Could not set Timeout: Invalid argument"

I also issued the same command with -t instead of --timeout, but the end result was the same. If you know what I am doing wrong, please help.

Just in case it may be relevant to the question, I am running Ubuntu Mate 20.04 LTS on a brand new desktop from CyberPowerPC.

Do not post added info in comments, but add to your original question. What brand/model system. Some like HP do not support some changes by efibootmgr.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
