Okay, this is good.

This is bad. This means that your ESXi server has send an response
that libvirt does not understand.

I don't have enough information at hand to tell what is going wrong here.

You could provide more information by applying the attached patch to
your libvirt source code and recompile it. The patch enables complete
HTTP traffic logging. It makes libvirt output all its communication
with the ESXi server to the log.

Then run this command

LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1 LIBVIRT_LOG_OUTPUTS=1:file:esx_traffic.log virsh -c
esx://example.com/?transport=http

It'll output the debug information to a file named esx_traffic.log in
the current directory. If you mail me this log file I might be able to
figure out what the problem is.

Be aware that this log will contain your ESXi hostname, username and
password in clear text, so you might want to remove this information
from the log file before mailing it to the list.

As Eric explained this is basically a policy decision and is not
related to any problems with the ESX driver on older Fedora or RHEL
version.

I think your specific problem is in your specific network and/or ESXi
server setup and the traffic log might allow to reveal and fix it.
