As others have mentioned you will need root privs to run dfu-util 
successfully. The other possible problem is the relatively short inactivity 
timeout on uboot - it may have shut down before you managed to run dfu-util. 
You can keep it awake by pressing the Aux button from time to time or make 
sure you have the commands ready to run before starting uboot.
