HPE SimpliVity upgrade manager 3.7.10 "object reference not set to an instance object"

Hello!
I'm in the middle of upgrading OmniStack 3.7.9->3.7.10. When I try to login with upgrade manager using IP address of vCenter I get this error message.

"object reference not set to an instance object"

Need to solve this a.s.a.p

Anyone who has the solution ?

Hello @fahlis , 

Have you tried uninstalling Deployment manager and re-install it? Also, make sure your are opening the software as administrator. What version of Windows are you running Deployment Manager on?

Hello @gustenar 

I am upgrading so no use of Deployment manager am I right ?
Or do I need to install the latest Deployment manager prior to ruinning the Upgrade manager ?
Never had to do that previously.
Just noticed some on-prem admin had uninstalled Java 1..8 so I'll try again after reinstalling Java.

Try restaring VC.

If you have an older version of upgrade manager this should be uninstalled.

@gustenar

No problem, but now I have this other issue. When I choose commit for upgrading OmniStack I get this popup.

"The arbiter version is incompatible with this software"

I started "simplivity-upgrade-manager-3.7.10.249.exe" from admin cmd ,  it resides in same folder as all others from the extracted ISO as it should.
Is there a newer separate version of upgrade manager available separately or what causes this error ?
How can I mitigate it ?
OS on the arbiter server is WS2012 R2 full updated. Java 1.8 , .NET 4.0

@fahlis 

What version of Simplivity Arbiter are you running? It must be upgraded to the supported version of the software you are trying to intall prior to installing the software.

@gustenar
"simplivity-arbiter-3.7.10.91"
And 
"simplivity-upgrade-manager-3.7.10.249"
Which both are included in the OmniStack 3.7.10 ISO
I noticed some leftover files under appdata\local\temp reffering to last upgrade. So i clerared that folder.
Tried again and same thing happened. 
I find this very strange. I suppose it won't work if I try CLI upgrade either ?
If so, could you please provide the correct command to do the CLI upgrade ?

Have you upgraded the arbiter on the machine where the arbiter is installed to 3.7.10 ?

grep arbiter $SVTLOG this should show where the arbiter is installed.

@fahlis As DaveOb mentioned, you need to make sure the new Arbiter version is installed on the Arbiter server.
