VMware Update Manager 1.0 u3 Fix for "There are errors during the remediation operation"

We have a fairly sizeable VMware ESX environment which we use VMware's Update Manager for the patching of our Hosts and guest VMs. Occasionaly when trying to patch VM's, I've attached a Baseline, already selected 'Scan for updates' but when selecting remediate received the message "There are errors during the remediation operation".

By manually running the 'VMware Update Manager Update Download' Scheduled Task using Run and then restarting the VMware Update Manager Service, I've found that the issue disappears. I'm wondering if there's some inconsistency between the metadata download and the data that Update Manager is holding? If anyone knows, i'd love to know!
