Apart from listed pre-requisites before starting Hypervisor Upgrade (ESXi) listed below, had to Disable Affinity Rules under DRS to enable ESXi host go into Maintainance mode and continue update.

Got stuck since i did found this part the hard way...
1) Genesis.out log pointed the target CVM owning Shutdown token and not letting it go.
2) Then from vCenter: Manual Shutdown of CVM -> Manually put related ESXi host in Maintainance mode -> Exit Maintainance mode -> Start CVM
3) Go to PRIMS and upgrade continues... and so does 2048...

Were these affinity rules "must" rules or "should" rules?

Also, out of my own curiosity, what were you using the rules for?

Also, for the sake of posterity, can you submit a support ticket, so we can formally track this? Ideally, we should detect this issue and notify you up front.
