Unable to Upgrade to VCSA 6.7U1

Jump to solution

I'm trying to update my VCSA from Version 6.7.0d to 6.7.0U1

My Current Version : 6.7.0.14000

Build Number: 9451876

Trying to Update to Build Number 10244745 Released on 16-OCT-2018

My Vcenter does not find an update when using VMware Appliance Management logged in as Root.

Checked CD ROM (Mounted ISO) + URL (Default repository) shows No applicable update found

When I mount the ISO on my windows PC and try and upgrade using the UI, I get the below error

Source machine version is 6.7 and this installer is 6.7.

2018-11-01T11:11:58.362Z - info: sourceVcService: Source VC Version=6.7, minVersion=6, maxVersion=6.7

2018-11-01T11:11:58.362Z - error: sourceVcService: Source VC version is not supported: vcVersion=6.7.0, minVersion=6

2018-11-01T11:11:58.363Z - error: Source VC version check failed

Not too sure if I am missing something here.

Hello, URL update mechnism is broken somehow.

Lets try to set custom repository URL to:

https://vapp-updates.vmware.com/vai-catalog/valm/vmw/8d167796-34d5-4899-be0a-6daade4005a3/6.7.0.1400...

Than check and it should serve you update to 6.7.0.20000 (6.7U1).

Funny is, that this is exactly the same URL as set default, but with default setting updater find nothing.

Second option is to mount the ISO directly to VCSA VM and then check updates by CD ROM option.
I updated that way all of our VCSAs and VRAs without problem.
