I am looking for online VIB repositories for Cisco's UCS based servers for use in VMware Update Manager. Is there any online VIB repository for Cisco UCS Central and UCS products I can use? I amalready using the Cisco UCS custom ESXi install for installing the hosts on the UCS based servers.

Yes, but cisco does not provide such service the way HP and Dell does.
So you should import patch bundles which are more or less zip file with vibs inside.
