    Dell 5.5 to 6.5 Customized Image Errors in Update Manager

    melroy87 Novice

      I've got a Dell R620 host at 5.5 Update 3b and I'm trying to use Update Manager in VCSA 6.5 Update 1c to upgrade it to ESXi 6.5 Update 1. I've tried the following images but for each of them it reboots the host then at the "About to Install" screen it keeps showing the logs in the attached screenshots then going round in a loop again to get to the same point. I then have to use recovery mode to get back to the old image before it will boot again.

       

      Images I've tried:

       

      VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0.update01-6765664.x86_64-DellEMC_Customized-A04

      VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0.update01-6765664.x86_64-DellEMC_Customized-A02

      VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0-5310538.x86_64-DellEMC_Customized-A05

       

      Any idea what could be causing this? I can see there's an error on package compliance but it didn't fail the pre-checks in the Web Client or throw any errors there so I'm not sure how to fix it.
