I got the baseline in "Non-Critical Host Patches (Predefined)" as non compliant listet.
There are 5 updates listet:
If i start the installation those updates do not install.
I do not know why.
Install starts and ends without error or so.
What is the reason? Any suggestions?
Thanks for help.

Okay. Here is my solution.
First of all VMware has no solution for the problem yet. It will be fixed in a later release as the support wrote. Which one they could not tell.
We did it the following way:
I downloaded the latest version of the missing patch/vib to a shared datastore that is available to all the affected hosts.
Then I logged on via SSH to the affected hosts and installed it manually.
I had to install only the one that is the latest version then all others were gone too.
The line to enter in my case:
esxcli software vib update -v /vmfs/volumes/yourshareddatastore/intel-nvme-vmd-en_188.8.131.521-1OEM.700.1.0.15843807_17797370/vib20/intel-nvme-vmd/INT_bootbank_intel-nvme-vmd_184.108.40.2061-1OEM.700.1.0.15843807.vib
Reference for the step by step guide is:
I had other problem but the solution is same.
I could easily conclude that with LCM, vSphere Update manager was broken big time
Creating a baseline with a single NVME driver worked for me as well.
Intel has a whole write up on how to manually install, setup, and use the drivers:
Where did you download the file? I can't find it anywhere including vmware patch. Also, isn't Intel-Volume-Mgmt-Device_220.127.116.117-1OEM.700.1.0.15843807 the latest version? Seems like they changed the name a bit, but it could be the latest version?
The latest version should already be in your lifecycle manager, you need to create a baseline with just that driver and apply it to the host, deploy it, and then your host should show in compliance.
