cumulative upgrades on esxi 5.5.0

Hi, I am running VMware ESXi 5.5.0 build-1746018 , and I want to upgrade to ESXi 5.5 Patch 5* Released 2015-05-08 build number 2718055

After looking at the vmware patches download page, I found the patch file ESXi550-201505002.zip

Is this all I need in order to perform the upgrade, or do I have to download 5.5 Update 2 first, and then apply the above patch file?

Thank you

Usually one looks at zip size. something like 200+MB is full update, much smaller is minor patch
You are not doing UPGRADE like ESXi 4.0U5->5.0U3

ESXi 5.5 Patch 5
Important: Patch recalled. For more information, see  After upgrading to VMware ESXi 5.5 Patch Release ESXi550-201504002, virtual machines using VMware NSX for vSphere 6.x or Cisco Nexus 1000v are unable to communicate across hosts (2116370)
