There are no free physical adapters to attach to this virtual switch – VMware ESXi

In case you face the bug that is shown below on the screenshot, in order to add an uplink on your virtual switch you should use the command line and esxcli.

The command that is needed is below. In this particular example I wanted to add the uplink with name vmnic1 on virtual switch vSwitch0

esxcli network vswitch standard uplink add --uplink-name=vmnic1 --vswitch-name=vSwitch0
