Then run u-boot-update

I did, it works perfectly.

Another question:
Does u-boot can draw any boot menu where I can choose what kernel load?
Not yet.

I too want selection of both kernel and boot device. Similar to Grub.

The issue is that ARM computers tend to have different I/O. The old x86 set the standard boot time sequence to have a BIOS, (Basic Input / Output System), which allowed programs like Grub to use both keyboard and display. The BIOS I/O functions were not meant to be fast, but well documented and standardized. We don't have such for ARM computers that I know of.

Our Pinebook Pros do have space for a BIOS like firmware, in a flash memory device we refer to as SPI. But, no functioning keyboard and display are available yet. And, we don't need, (or want), to use the SPI during testing, as a mistake can soft-brick a Pinebook Pro.
