I am currently attempting to upgrade magento from version .0 to the newest .6 version and the upgrade does not go past it saying 'update pending' as a status.
The console log is empty, does anyone know why this is happening?
We have the same issue it is stuck on the "Update Pending" - this is when i skip the Backup since the Backup does not work.
I had the same issue as you.
For me the solution was to simply give the cron a little "kick".
Via. SSH I used:
"php bin/magento setup:cron:run"
"php bin/magento cron:run"
WHILE at the "Update pending" screen I typed the above commands into SSH and in seconds I could see more log output and eventually the upgrade completed. Sometimes it needs multiple cron "kicks" before being completed, I just typed above commands every time it seemed stuck.
Let me know if you need more info or something.
Jonas' solution is correct, i.e., the update will be run by the cron job. I use the CLI to force the cron to run.
Mage 2.0 is roughly 50% command line, 50% admin. Not sure how much I like that...
Magento 2.1.2; Installing Component (german language pack); same symptoms -> update hangs.
Jonas' solution worked as well; needed about 5 kicks. (Thanx Jonas!)
Feel with bcornell -> why having s spiffy UI if you have to handcrank every second process anyway?
I would like to help you but I really don't understand your question.
Could you maybe rephrase it?
