Vmware Update Manager fails to download patches from patch store

I ran in to this error when I sat up a new ESXi blade.

“Host cannot download files from VMware vSphere Update Manager patch store. Check the network connectivity and firewall setup, and check esxupdate logs for details.”

 

It turned out that the problem was that I had forgot to set up an reverse dns lookup record for the ESXis IP address.
