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

Posted 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’

Sounds pretty serious, but what does this error mean?  Simply, the VCSA cannot access the default repository on the vmware.com site.

What could be the cause/solution?  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 accessed the repository and downloaded the 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.
