ESXi patching fails on ESXi 7 Update 2a

I suspect this issue is related to VMware screwing up USB support in ESXi 7.0 Update 2a. I suspect these threads are related

I found a quick workaround for my Homelab so I can get patched past Update 2a and hopefully not have to deal with this anymore:

Here is the error I got when trying to update:

[[email protected]:~] esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-7.0U2c-18426014-standard \
> -d
Failed to query file system stats: Errors:
Cannot open volume:
cause = Errors:
Cannot open volume:
Please refer to the log file for more details.

I ran the following: esxcli storage core adapter rescan -a

Once completed I was able to patch my ESXi to 7.0U2c 18426014
