Hello readers!! You might come across the following issue when trying to upgrade the vRealize Tenant App for vCD, there is no much information in the official documentation on how to troubleshoot this product, but no worries! this post will help you!
In our scenario, we are using the offline iso file vROps-Tenant-App-for-vCD-18.104.22.168550-18326914-updaterepo.iso to update vROPs Tenant App for vCD from version 2.6 to 2.6.1
Once the iso file is mounted, new Updates validated the Install operation fails with the following error:
‘Failed to install updates(Error while running installation tests) on <Day>, <Year> <Month> <Date> <Time>’
In the VAMI logs /opt/vmware/var/log/vami/updatecli.log we observe an error after checking the space required for the installation

At your own risk!! If you are going to attempt this make sure you have the same symptoms, take a snapshot of your appliance. We highly recommend contacting VMware Support for further assistance.
Open a putty session and run:
docker image prune -a WARNING! This will remove all images without at least one container associated to them. Are you sure you want to continue?

This command will clear the space in Tenant App. Once it’s completed, re-attempt the installation
After updating the appliance we noticed the vcloud director plugin was not updated, so it was required to reconfigure it. Another issue appeared after doing it, the solution is documented in one of our posts “Fix: Unable to register plugin vRealize Operations Tenant App for VMware Cloud Director“
