What is your current esxi build/patch number
And why you want to patch your host.
ESXi-6.5.0-20190702001-standard (aka "Update 3") is the latest patch for ESXi 6.5, but you are already running ESXi 6.7, so another version of ESXi.
VMware maintains multiple versions of vSphere (vCenter and ESXi) in parallel (currently 6.0, 6.5 and 6.7) and releases patches for each of them.
Since you are already on version 6.7 you cannot apply a patch for 6.5.
@RajeevVCP4> thanks for your answer. I'm running currently ESXi-6.7.0-20190604001. See attached files for build number. The imageprofile name is not up to date because i only updated the VIBs manually for patch ESXi-6.7.0-20190604001 since i had a bug with the full imageprofile update (no space left on device, see my previous posts on the forum).
@peetz > thanks for your answer. What i don't understand is why VMware maintains multiple versions of vSphere in parallel and what are the differences between them?

VMware actually maintains 3 version at the moment v6.0, v6.5, and v6.7.
Why multiple versions? Please see General Lifecycle Support Policy
There may be reasons, why users cannot upgrade to the latest version, e.g. hardware compatibility, compatibility to other products ...
Thanks for your answer guys.
