    It doesn't matter if SQL Server is runing on a physical or virtual machine, the upgrade process is always the same.

    Hi Mariamgevorgyan-1413,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A.
    You can upgrade SQL Server from SQL Server side. Please refer to this article to make sure if the upgrade is supported. And you can perform an in-place upgrade, or side-by-side upgrade. Please refer to this article for more details.

    In addition, you issue is related to VMware vCenter. I suggest you open a thread in the vCenter forum.

    Best Regards,
