Update Manager "Upload File" privilege not present!

I have an interesting issue. When I go to permissions in vCenter, to add the "Upload File" privilege, which is found under the "Update Manager" list of privileges, it is not there. All the other Update Manager privileges are there.

When I checked other vCenter servers, it is present on them.

I noticed this when trying to download an upgrade bundle

  • Import Upgrade Releases option is greyed out

Why would this be? Any way I can get this Upload File privilege back into the list of privileges? Quite strange

Here is the article that explains about adding this required upload file privilege when one usually sees the Import Upgrade Release button as being greyed out:

Any help would be really great, thx!!!

Just in case someone else comes across this post: the cleanest and quickest solution is to uninstall VUM and to re-initialize the database.  Afterwards VUM can be re-installed.
