I've a VCentre server virtual appliance, it's currently on build Build 4180648 and I want to upgrade to 6.0

I've downloaded VMWare-VCSA-all-, unpacked and opened the vcsa-setup.html

However I'm having issues trying to get the upgrade started

I want to do an in place upgrade and so I am selecting upgrade but no matter how often I try the (tried and test to be correct) root credentials it doesn't authenticate . It tries because i get the untrusted SSL certificate warning but doesn't accept password - "Cannot authenticate to the target server"

If I go back and choose migrate It does authenticate and then asks where I want to store the new VM etc etc.
However i believe that's for migrating a Windows box to a new appliance rather than upgrade the existing appliance.

Any ideas on how I can proceed?
