Seem that modules files is corrupted, or you are using a different kernel version.

Have you tried to reboot your host?

If yes, you can try to reinstall the old version from the ESX CD.

Check the package name for NFS support with:

rpm -qf /usr/lib/vmware/vmkmod/nfsclient

Then mount ESX CD, and force a package reinstallation (or try to reapply the upgrade).
