I am having some issues patching my vcenter server from 6.5.0u3 to 6.5.0u3o ... I am running the update from an iso file using the command software-package install --iso and it mounts the iso, stages the patches and I go through accepting the terms and conditions and then it fails with no warning message. I tried updating from the appliance manager with the same results.
A couple of notes..
This is an isolated system without access to the internet
I reset the root password on the appliance prior to attempting to patch
I attempted patching to multiple other versions besides the 6.5u3o but all gave the same results
I am not sure if this is related but the /storage/logs directory was out of disk space and giving errors in the appliance manager... prior to attempting the patch I increased the disk space and expanded the disk, the errors went away
I have this from the logs but I am not sure how to proceed:
error: error(-30986) getting "libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.2.5)(64bit)" records from Requirename index: BDB0075 DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found

If you are on 6.5 U3 GA ; then go to 6.5 U3N first (use FP ISO) and then go to 6.5 U3O (use FP ISO)
NOTE:- Revert to snapshot before your previous attempts.
