Patch not updating from Update manager

Hi,

I am trying to update the esxi patch through update manager but i am getting the below error.

VMware vSphere Update Manager had an unknown error. Check the events and log files for details.

Esxi version - 6.5

vcenter version - 6.5

Hello,

Could you check logs for any details:

On vCenter(Update Manager) it should be here:

/var/log/vmware/vmware-updatemgr/vum-server/vmware-vum-server.log

Take a look to the esxupdate.log on the ESXi rather than on VCSA/VUM.

Regards,

Joerg

Same problem. And moreover, it seems that that my /var/log/vmware/ directory only contains one entry, journal, that is empty.
