I am installing a plug in to a esx 4.1 host using the esxupdate command. The plug is in the zip format.(offline bundle)
The command is:
" esxupdate --nodeps --maintenancemode --nosigcheck update "
and am getting the following error..

error: Failed acquiring information for 'metadata-1962024575':
error: file:///var/tmp/cache/metadata-1962024575/ESXi/Packages.gz: File not found for validation
Encountered error MetadataFormatError:
The error data is:
Filename - None
Message - Failed scanning package data: Downloading metadata failed.
Errno - 5
Description - The format of the metadata is invalid.

Can any give an idea to solve this ASAP
