Issues:

1. The upgrade gets stuck at the following line in the install.log: "Loading registered objects for building blocks bootstrap..."

Cause

Each case is unique, however each reported solution can help in determining a resolution plan.

Resolution

One or more of the resolutions will need to be performed by the DBA team:
