The easiest way to solve this problem will be to just proceed to select a partition in the source Vcenter that has enough Available space on it for example /storage/updatemanager

This applies for upgrades to vCenter 6.7 u1

zilgs thanks so much for your assistance.  Using your idea for me it still wasnt working so i sshd to the appliance and noticed that my path was slightly different than yours from your text(your screenshot has it right on though)

/storage/updatemgr

Once i typed in the correct path it went through without a hitch.

thx for the help!
