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

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!
