The links you've posted are about patching a VCHA environment.

In order to upgrade it, you'll need to destroy the current VCHA as mentioned by daphnissov​.

See e.g. "Upgrade" at vCenter High Availability Deep Dive - Part 2 - VMware vSphere Blog

You'll need to disable and break HA before you do the upgrade. Passive and witness nodes should be deleted. Perform the upgrade, then re-enable HA.
