We are having some issues applying the CHF001 cumulative hot fixes for IM, IP and IG in vApp 14.4.02.

We are getting an error when applying the patch downloaded from Broadcom support website:

> patch_vapp CHF_IGV-14.4.2-CHF001.tar.gz

[WARN] It is highly recommended to run the patching process from within a "tmux" session - which you can re-login to in case the SSH session disconnects
[WARN] Please execute the command "tmux" and then run this command again

Do you want to continue the patch installation while NOT on a tmux session? (y/n)  y

vApp 14.4.02 CHF001 patches are provided as tar archives, and must be expanded first (except CHF_VA-14.4.2-20231019120955-VA001.tgz.gpg file that can be used directly)


Use tar utility to expand the patch archives:

tar -xpvf <tar_file_name>

For instance:

> tar -xpvf CHF_IMV-14.4.2-CHF001.tar.gz

Please note that each of the archives (CHF_IGV-14.4.2-CHF001.tar.gz, CHF_IMV-14.4.2-CHF001.tar.gz and  CHF_IPV-14.4.2-CHF001.tar.gz) contains a folder, which in tern contains one or more patch files, like IM archive shown above.
So to install a patch please include folder name:

patch_vapp CHF_IMV-14.4.2-CHF001/CHF_CS-14.4.2-20231020113230-CHF001.tgz.gpg
