          Hello KennyNoah,


          Welcome to Skyline Communities !!!


          Kindly follow the below-mentioned steps to isolate the issue and upgrade Skyline.


          1. Reboot the appliance (Skyline health services are needed to be started for the upgrade to initiate thereby all the required services are started.)
          2. Check the communicate status from Skyline to the VMware VAPP web
            1. Connect to the Skyline virtual machine collector using the VM console
            2. Login with root credentials
            3. Execute the command: curl -v https://vapp-updates.vmware.com:443
            4. Once executed you should see the connection status of the certificate to be Ok.
            5. If the certificate validation is not complete, then check the firewall rule and make sure Skyline Appliance is able to communicate on the network to vapp-update.vmware.com over port 443.
