I was running the upgrade on my HP microserver Gen 8 ESXi host, and it threw an error:
[root@esx1:~] esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.5.0-20171004001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODU
[Errno 28] No space left on device
vibs = VMware_locker_tools-light_6.5.0-0.23.5969300
Please refer to the log file for more details.
I ended up having to install the locker tool first:
esxcli software vib install -f -v /tmp/VMware_locker_tools-light_6.5.0-0.23.5969300.vib
Then I ran the update, and it worked perfect!

Thanks for the post. Had the same problem and this solved it for me, too!
Thanks. Had this issue going from 6.7u1 to 6.7u2.
Nice trick… I used this to go to 6.7u2 to 6.7u3 (released yesterday). It was VMware_locker_tools-light_10.3.10.12406962-14141615
After manual install of this VIB, the major update installed fine. Thanks for this one !
For sure! Glad it could hello.
