Linux has a dfu-util, device firmware updater. But I've no clue if eaton
would allow access to do that via its USB interface. This is obviously
independent from Nut.
Have you the file to be used to update the EEPROM with?
Here is its help screen, mat or may not be usefull.
Usage: dfu-util [options] ...

-p --path bus-port. ... .port Specify path to DFU device
-c --cfg config_nr Specify the Configuration of DFU device
-i --intf intf_nr Specify the DFU Interface number
-a --alt alt Specify the Altsetting of the DFU Interface
by name or by number
-t --transfer-size Specify the number of bytes per USB Transfer
-U --upload file Read firmware from device into <file>
-D --download file Write firmware from <file> into device
-R --reset Issue USB Reset signalling once we're finished
