It may be simpler to just rebuild the server as the updated version.
Installing and configuring ESXi is fairly simple.

Is it possible that you try to upgrade a VMware version to a HP version or vice versa?

I assume your vCenter and Update Manager is already the latest version 4.1?

Hello, your host update utility is old.
Best way is use vCenter with Update manager, but du you have it?
