VUM Failure to remediate "error codes: -1"

I have a cluster that I wanted to update but one of the nodes has been giving me a problem. At first it would not migrate the active vms over to another node so i have to manually migrate that. Then i had an issue getting it into maintenance mode but now that works. However when i go to apply some patches it gives me `The host returns esxupdate error codes: -1. Check the Update Manager log files and esxupdate log files for more details.`

I tried looking through the /var/log/esxupdate.log but theres alot of debug entries and im not sure what to look for or if this is the right place.
