VCSA 7 Error in method invocation [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/storage/core/software-update/updates/index’

Posted on Updated on

This could be my shortest blog to date, but it’s still good to note this error.

In my home lab I wanted to update my VCSA 7 appliance to 7.0u1.  I went into the VCSA Management site, choose update, and the auto update started to look for files in the default repository.  Then I got the following error:

Error in method invocation [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/storage/core/software-update/updates/index’

Doing a bit of research I found out the following – When the VCSA cannot locate the default vmware.com site repository the VCSA will display this error.

In my case, my VCSA could not access the internet so it couldn’t locate the repository. Once I corrected a network issue, the VCSA was able to access the repository and it downloaded the upgrade options.

If you like my ‘no-nonsense’ blog articles that get straight to the point… then post a comment or let me know… Else, I’ll start writing boring blog content.

      Great point! Can’t tell you how many issues I solved when it was one of these — IP Config/connectivity, DNS, NTP, or Authentication Services (ie. AD)
