the "Clear CMOS" button is not for bios update, it is only to force a components discovery (configuration erase then load) and load of bios default values. This mobo has not Flashback+. Therefore, Yes, an older CPU is required to update the bios if it is not already compatible with Rz-3000 (at least V2.9M who is available since 2019-07-01).
Sorry for this bad news,
