The easiest way is to mount the .iso to your local PC and upgrade it that way. Link

Edit: Here is the download link for the latest .iso. Link Release Date 2017-10-26
I dont think update manager supports it, when we upgrade we just use the tools built into the 6.5 to deploy a new VCSA and migrate the data.  Works fine

Update Manager currently updates hosts, VMware Tools, virtual machine hardware version, not VCSA.
