TOPIC: Upgrade 1.87 to 1.91 fails in all methods

Upgrade 1.87 to 1.91 fails in all methods 3 years 3 months ago #64157

Well, after a delay, I decided it was time to upgrade, and failed both with the "Comfort" upgrade process and the manual method. First, the env stats:

PHP: 5.2.17
MYSQL: Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.92
HOST: 1and1

COMFORT:
The system lists a stack of files that it claims (a) exist (they don't) and that are (b) read-only. Short output snip below. The ComfortUpgrade script omits the leading server name (in this case "/kunden") but a manual inspects shows that the individual files themselves don't exist. Since the upgrade script requires this to be fixed, no other info available.

MANUAL:
Complete disaster. After a couple of database errors (of the ALTER TABLE flavor and seemingly not of consequence) the script simply stops after displaying a series of progress dots. Example below.

Any advice is welcome. I see other folks having similar problems, but I don't see a clear bug report or fix.
