IMHO, If you have vCenter you can upgrade it first and then use VUM to upgrade the hosts.

PS: the update 1 of 4.1 is now available.

I just used VMware Update Manager (VUM) from within vCenter.

It took care of everything and I had no issues.

When I did my upgrade, wanted to use VUM but the tech warned me that (at the time ) Update Manager had concerns. I took the path of copying the upgrade file to each host and ran it manually.

I had no problems doing each host this way.

Good luck.
