If you dont see any updates you can follow the first couple of steps in my other post here: http://192.168.2.19/2020/07/16/upgrading-vcf-4-0-to-vcf-4-0-1/

Once i logged on to my SDDC Manager i was able to see that na update is already available for me to download:

All i had to do was click on my management domain SDDC-MGT and then go to the Update\Patches tab

After reviewing the update notes click on Download now. The download will start and it will take some time to get there as it is about 11 GB. I took this time to check the environment to make sure everything was ready for the update

Once the download is complete click on Update Now

Once the upgrade starts we will get redirected to the update status page:

My update went thorough without a hitch and finished in 35 minutes. All i had to is click finish

Next is updating vCenter to 7.0.0c. Click on download now under Inventory -> Workload Domains -> Management domain -> Updates/Patches

Once the download is complete click on Update Now. This will initiate a task to perform the necessary steps to get the vCenter server upgraded to 7.0.0.c

Dont forget to follow the same steps for the workload domain if you have one
