Do you also get the error using the syntax I showed in your other question?

No lockdown mode enabled?

if you are trying to update ESXi 5.5 heartbleed fix use

Also Make Sure you are in Maintenance Mode and VMs OFF

esxcli software update -d /vmfs/volume/.....

or

esxcli software install -d /vmfs/volume/.....

no need to use chmod (this is not required and not Linux!)

also check the release notes, and use the correct update!
