Hi jwvdleest,
the update is a normal package update - nothing super-special.
But from your logs I see an issue on your system.

On 2018-05-17  07:00:08 there was a full "apt-get dist-upgrade -y".
This is what - among other updates - pulled in the newer open-vm-tools.

But this not only asked you for modifications of conffiles which are:
a) meant to be auto-generated
b) if changed it will ask you on updates if you want/need to keep your content

To be sure I tried a base Xenial install with these files unchanged - it
upgrades without asking me to the new version of open-vm-tools.

Your system lists these files as modified on: 2017-03-10T09:27
Maybe that helps to find what/why they were changed in the first place.

With those files modified DPDK has no choice (unless you force it with
e.g. --force-confnew see man dpkg) but to ask you about how to handle

Even worse, if this would not have stopped there you'd still have a failed 
Your system lists also plenty of files deleted
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.conf: [deleted]
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.schemas.XMLSchema.dtd: [deleted]
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.schemas.XMLSchema.xsd: [deleted]
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.schemas.catalog.xml: [deleted]
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.schemas.datatypes.dtd: [deleted]
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.schemas.xenc-schema.xsd: [deleted]
modified.conffile..etc.vmware-tools.vgauth.schemas.xml.xsd: [deleted]

This would have broken a restart of the associated services which has to happen 
on an upgrade.
So chances are high this would have hit you right after.
If you don't want open-vm-tools you can just remove it fully through "apt 
remove --purge".
If you need it then I'd ask you to configure it so that it can work, only then 
it can properly upgrade.
