You need to contact Acer about this, as the only way this could happen is if they've given a BIOS update to Microsoft, to be applied via UEFI as part of a Windows Update, that is somehow not registering as being already done.
You could also try, at least temporarily, Preventing Windows Update from Updating Device Drivers
It's also very likely that Acer has a "service station" type driver and firmware update monitoring program, and if it does I'd install it and let it take care of BIOS updates. I just tried finding it at the Acer support site but the site itself seems to be having issues at the moment.
