    I have upgraded my project by following the instructions given in the following link.

    http://docs.sitefinity.com/upgrade

    as mention in the link  I have downloaded the sitefinity latest project manager(8.2 Trial version) and follow the up-gradation  procedure and then it stuck on the following message.

    Timestamp: 2/16/2016 7:25:26 AM
    Message: PASSED : OpenAccessPageProvider : Upgrad AllowParameterValidation

     

    And I waited the entire day in hopes that it may proceed but  it didn't !

    I have also attached the UpgradeTrace.txt  file image.

    Hello,

    I would suggest running an SQL profiler during the next attempt to upgrade just to see whether there are SQL queries being made when the screen is stuck on that message. While there are SQL queries being executed it would mean that the upgrade is still running. 

    If there have not been any queries executed in the past 5-10 minutes it would most likely mean that an error has occurred. Try refreshing the page in that case and see if the upgrade continues.

    One free SQL profiler that can be used can be found here: https://expressprofiler.codeplex.com/

    Hi,
    In the process of upgrading my project I am stuck on the following point I have tried a lot of solutions to similar problems but still did't get rid of my problem!
    I am unable to access following links  and it gives me the  error as shown in attached file. 
    http://localhost:1007/Sitefinity/Content/Documents/LibraryDocuments
    http://localhost:1007/Sitefinity/Content/Images/LibraryImages
    http://localhost:1007/Sitefinity/Content/Videos/LibraryVideos
    Although I am able to access  all the libraries by their default page links as follows 
    http://localhost:1007/Sitefinity/Content/Documents
    http://localhost:1007/Sitefinity/Content/Images
    http://localhost:1007/Sitefinity/Content/Videos
    I have tried  following links to solve my problem
    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/bugs-issues-/unable-to-access-image-library-in-sitefinity-v-6-1-x
    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/bugs-issues-/error-when-going-to-content-images-after-6-1-upgrade

    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/knowledge-base/details/cannot-insert-duplicate-key-in-object-'dbo.sf_presentation_data'-error-when-reinstalling-libraries-module-after-upgrade

    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/knowledge-base/details/reinstall-sitefinity-module

    The thing I am unable to implement is as mention in the last link ,
    1) deactivate the module (In my case I have deactivate the Libraries module )
    2)Uninstall the module (In my case I have Uninstall the Libraries module but after page refresh it again gives me options of Uninstall /activate  instead of install)

    Hi,

    Please try the solution in the following KB article: http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/knowledge-base/details/object-reference-not-set-to-an-instance-of-an-object-error-when-accessing-libraries-after-upgrade

    If that doesn't help please open a support ticket so we can provide you with a way to get a copy of your project to us and investigate further.

    This issue was resolved through support ticket!!!
    And I am sharing the solution,
    We have to upgrade our project again and before upgrading the project we have to remove all "config:lazy" entries from our LibrariesConfig.config file, Which was actually causing some problem during the upgrade process.

    Note : Full upgrade procedure with a well explain article can be seen here
