Hi! The steps you described are correct but you also have to be careful to respect the following points:

  1. Do not supply the Persee+ during the flash operation, for the whole time keep the power supply unattached.
  2. Connect the USB to your PC, then press the reset button and keep it pressed when you connect the type-C to the Persee+ until the USB Burn Tool detects the device.

It is very wierd that Orbbec did not provide more detailed instructions concerning this operation, we spent a day to discovery it by ourselves.

The Ubuntu version that you linked should be the latest one.
