Update ESXi version or image profile?

I have update our two ESXi5.5 from update1 to update2 (2068190) using the local method esxcli command. The steps I used are this:

1- DOwnload the code from vmware and copy it to the local datastore of both nodes.

/vmfs/volumes/53d5ebc4-3a91b41b-2577-6cae8b3420a8 # ls -ltr

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root     655857524 Dec 22 14:02 update-from-esxi5.5-5.5_update02.zip

2- Update ESXi version using this command:

esxcli software vib update --depot=/vmfs/volumes/53d5ebc4-3a91b41b-2577-6cae8b3420a8/update-from-esxi5.5-5.5_update02.zip

3- Once finshed, reboot ESXi.

4- Then, update the image profile:

esxcli software profile update  --depot=/vmfs/volumes/53d5ebc4-3a91b41b-2577-6cae8b3420a8/update-from-esxi5.5-5.5_update02.zip --profile=ESXi-5.5.0-20140902001-standard

5- Once finished, reboot ESXi.

But, when I see  version code on vcenter I see image profile is not updated. Please, see image attached. It's still saying it's on esxi5.5 update1 insted esxi5.5 update2?

Didi I skip any update step?

I dont have ye Update Manager appliance, so I need to do it from ESXi's console.

Thanks much.
