So far, all components are your Primary site have been upgraded.  The last piece is to upgrade the Vsphere Replication appliances.  This can be done by downloaded the upgrade iso from MyVmware.

1.  The appliances that get deployed using SRM do not have a CDROM drive added.  So, you will need to shut it down and add the CDROM to upgrade from ISO.
