Vmware Esxi Update No Space Left On Device Error

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

I’m trying to install updates from a zip file but always gives the same error. “No Space Left On Device”

But there is a plenty of space on Device.

When i try to run

esxcli software vib update -d /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/ESXi600-201703001.zip

it gives that error:

[InstallationError]

[Errno 28] No space left on device

       vibs = VMware_bootbank_misc-drivers_6.0.0-3.57.5050593

Please refer to the log file for more details.

 

And in the log file:
