vCenter Appliance stuck in Checking for Updates – Solution

Had a Customer where the vCenter Appliance is stuck at “Checking for updates” even after reboot. This caused if you try checking for updates without any internet.

The solution is to initiate a manual process from within the vCenter Appliance console.


1. Log into Appliance with SSH  2. /opt/vmware/bin/vamicli update –check

3. /opt/vmware/bin/vamicli update –install latest –accepteula

Hope that helps!
