Upgrade from vCenter 5.5 to 6.5 unable to invoke during stage 2

I am working on upgrading a lab environment vcenter from 5.5 to 6.5   Now I have done stage one with no issue but on the last step of stage two where you hit finish I am getting an error saying Unable to invoke installation due to:   then nothing after that. It is just a blank notification. I looked around online and nothing seemed to match what I was getting I saw a bunch of RPM errors and such but nothing where it was a blank notification error message.

Any ideas on what it might be?

my set up is vcenter 6.5 running on esxi 6.0 which was running two 5.5 esxi and a 5.5 vcenter

Server is a Dell R710 LLF 2 x 4 core and 146 GB of storage as a singe datastore.

Can you show screenshots of the installation process where you deploy the new appliance?

Check the destination ESXi host where this is getting deployed. Is NTP running and configured to point at an ​internal​ NTP server within your environment? Is the workstation from which you're running this wizard pointed at the same NTP server and the times are in sync?

Thanks I changed it to a public NTP server to test and that solved it. God I love this community.
