esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient
esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-5.5.0-20160804001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

Try use the FULL path for your bundle, something like esxcli software vib install -d /vmfs/volume/5343eda3-9ea90c05-129d-80c16e66af30/ESXi550-201608001.zip assuming 5343eda3-9ea90c05-129d-80c16e66af30 is your datastore UUID.

Make sure you have updated vCenter Server first to 5.5 Update 3! otherwise the current version of vCenter Server will not manage ESXi 5.5 U3.

Based on build number
5.5.0.30500 Build 4180648.
vCenter are already on U3, to be exact, the version  5.5 Update 3e.
