New - Upgrade to vSphere Replication 8.8 fails with an error
When you attempt to perform a chain upgrade from an earlier version of vSphere Replication, for example from version 8.3 to version 8.8, the upgrade might fail with an error.
Operation Failed: Failed to install update.
The logs located in
/opt/vmware/var/log/vami/updatecli.log show the following:
Error: Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'VMware Photon Linux 3.0 (x86_64)' from 'https://packages.vmware.com/photon/3.0/photon_release_3.0_x86_64'1. package xml-security-c-1.7.3-4.ph2.x86_64 requires libcrypto.so.1.0.0()(64bit), but none of the providers can be installed.
Alternatively, vSphere Replication might fail to boot, displaying the following error:
Loading Linux 4.19.182-2.ph3 ...
error: file '/vmlinuz-4.19.182-2.ph3' not found.
Loading initial ramdisk ...
error: you need to load the kernel first.
This issue is fixed in vSphere Replication 126.96.36.199.
