vCenter 5.5 upgrade fails and rolls back

Upgrading our 5.1 vCenter to 5.5, we ran into this error:

"Simple Install Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error"

This turned out to be related to a mismatch btw the Registry VC IP address and the expected FQDN.
VMware KB2060511 provides the solution for this issue (clean up the failed upgrade dir, and modify the registry setting)
