update-grub is a Debian/Ubuntu thing, and isn't present on Fedora.
You can add the kernel argument specified in the linked article in one
of two ways.

The first way is just a simple command:
sudo grubby --update-kernel=/boot/vmlinuz-$(uname -r)
--args="usbhid.quirks=0x0eef:0x725e:0x40"

The second way is to edit /boot/grub2/grub.cfg, locate the line
starting with "linux" of the newest kernel, and add the kernel
argument ("usbhid.quirks=0x0eef:0x725e:0x40") to the end.
