PP Engineering identified the issue was occurring due to the upgrade package being copied over to the /tmp directory and then the script was run.
The upgrade script uses some processes that require the use of /tmp dir and that was causing the upgrade issues as above.
Copying the update package to another directory (other than /tmp) and running the appliance-update script worked with no issues.
For appliance upgrades - Copy the Upgrade package over to any other directory except for /tmp and run the upgrade script.
