I'll keep this quick and simple.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C855-1GP Laptop and Toshiba Tempro said I need (well, should) update my BIOS to the latest Firmware.

I downloaded and ran the .exe to update it, and I get this error message:

What do I do?

You should NEVER need to upgrade a prebuilt or laptop's BIOS.

There is no reason for you to.

Hmmm, so I don't actually need to update it?

Probably not.

In general you are only going to update your BIOS (even in custom built computers) only when there is a clear problem that the update fixes.  Otherwise it is best not to mess with it.

I used to follow the "I need to keep everything as up to date as possible!" idea.

Three bricked CD-RW drives later I kind of decided to just go with the "it works, and I want to keep it that way" idea.
