Quick Fix – VCSA 188.8.131.5200 Can’t Update via URL from Management Interface
I had an issue with my VCSA today trying to upgrade to vCenter 6.7 Update 1 whereby the Management Interface Upgrade option was not detecting the update to upgrade the appliance to 6.7 Update 1. It was a similar issue to this VMwareKB, however the URL that is mentioned in that instance was already in the VCSA Settings.Mark Ukotic. After a reboot and resize I had plenty of storage left, but still couldn’t trigger an update from the URL. At this point I did download the Update patch ISO from the VMware Patch center and loaded it up manually…however the issue of it not popping up automatically was annoying me.
As mentioned, the settings of the VCSA Update window has the following URL listed:
Having asked around a little the quick fix was provided by Matt Allford who provided me with the URL that was present in his VCSA after he upgraded successfully via the CLI.
I added that as a custom repository as shown below…
Interestingly enough, after the upgrade the default Update Repository was set to the one Matt provided for me.
