I recently faced some challenges with a VCF upgrade due to having ESXi hosts running a build that was not on the VCF 4.2 Bill Of Materials. The issue was, that even though I had downloaded the bundle for the ESXi 7.0U2 upgrade, it went to Download History instead of showing as an available upgrade. To get the full story, visit my blog here: https://www.dimensionquest.net/2021/04/vcf-sddc-manager-not-showing-esxi-bundle.
