HI, ( always say HI)
I was doing an offline upgrade from 5.1 to 5.5 via
Type the command to update the host: esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/volumes/<datastore UUID>/<filename.zip>
/vmfs/volumes/52282ac7-4e0a0e34-2a9b-848f69d9ab7b # [DependencyError]
-sh: [DependencyError]: not found
/vmfs/volumes/52282ac7-4e0a0e34-2a9b-848f69d9ab7b # VIB VMware_bootbank_esx-base_5.5.0-2.33.2068190 requires esx-xlibs, but the requirement cannot be satisfied within the ImageProfile.
bad zip? User error?
The zip is loaded and visible on the datastore.
I got the cli from vmware support but I'm guessing the cli is missing something,
In order to upgrade to a later version you'll need to use the esxcli software profile command. Please take a look at e.g. A Pretty Cool Method of Upgrading to ESXi 5.1 for how this can be done. Alternatively to using an URL for the upgrade, you may also use an Offline Bundle.
