Note: Initial post was posted on 23/04/2016.[Updated] When applying a vCenter update VMware Python failed code 3010. Was an update from our Windows vCenter 6.0 to 6.0 update 2 we get this strange error:
“Installation of component VMware Python components failed with error code ‘3010’”
Troubleshooting the problem, it seems that is only related to some temporary files in the installation folder.
So the solution/workaround is to clean Windows temp folder(I use CCleaner), reboot the server and then re-run the update again.
Today when trying to update from 6.0 U3 -> U3a I get the same error. The solution above did fix the issue, and I was able to apply the update.
Today when I try to update Windows vCenter 6.0 to vCenter Server 6.0 Update 3d get the error:
“Installation of component VMware Open SSL components failed with error code ‘3010’.”
To fix this issue, follow the same process and did fix the installation issue.
Hope this can help.
