Download  vCenter iso and that will have vCenter, Update Manager, Single Sign On, etc..

Install vCenter, SSO, and Infrastructure service  (if on a windows machine) and then install update manager

You will need to install on a windows machine and register the plug-in with vCenter.

Here's a KB on what's bundled with appliance and what's not

It will install a SQL Express instance for you if you like, it's the easiest way to go.  That's the ISO you need.
