  1. Actual VIB depot is most likely inside that zip, you need to unzip it first. But why bother with PowerPath/VE, just use native NPM and enable round robin mode.

  2. Where is your .zip file located? On /tmp or on the datastore? The command only works with absolute path.
    Can you run a df -h to confirm enough space on root partition?

    An other option is to import the file in Update Manager, create an Extension Baseline and patch it with VUM:
