Each type of cluster update requires a specific PAK file. Make sure you are using the correct one.

To update your vRealize Operations Manager environment, you need to download the right PAK file for the clusters you wish to upgrade. Notice that only the Virtual Appliance clusters use an OS Update PAK file. Host name entries in the /etc/hosts of each node might be reset when applying the OS update PAK file for an update from vRealize Operations 6.0.x to version 6.1. You can manually update the hosts file after completing the software update.
