Attempts to upgrade a host from ESX 4.x to ESX 4.1 Update 1 fail and the error messages appear in ESX and vSphere Update Manager:
In ESX, the host logs the following error message in the esxupdate.log file:
“DependencyError: VIB rpm_vmware-esx-vmware-release-4_4.1.0-0.0.260247@i386 breaks host API vmware-esx-vmware-release-4 <= 4.0.9"
In vSphere Update Manager, the Task and Events tab displays the following error message:
Remediation did not succeed: SingleHostRemediate: esxupdate error, version: 1.30, "operation: 14: There was an error resolving dependencies" error
This issue occurs when the ESX 4.x host is running a version of IBM Management Agent earlier than 6.2.
