To resolve these errors, perform the following tasks:

  1. Log in to your Magento server as, or switch to, the Magento file system owner.

    If you don’t have access to the Magento server file system, connect to it using an FTP application.

  2. Remove the following files so you can upgrade again:

    <your Magento install dir>/var/.maintenance.flag
    <your Magento install dir>/var/.update_in_progress.flag
    <your Magento install dir>/var/cache/*
    <your Magento install dir>/var/page_cache/*
    <your Magento install dir>/var/generation/*
  3. Run your upgrade again, making sure to complete all tasks discussed in Run System Upgrade.

var/session permissions failure

If your Magento application is set to write session data to the <your Magento install dir>/var/session directory, you must set permissions on that directory before you upgrade.

How to find where Magento stores session files.

To verify whether or not sessions are stored in <your Magento install dir>/var/session, log in to your Magento server, or switch to, Magento file system owner and enter the following command:

ls <your Magento file install dir>/var/session

For example, if Magento is installed in /var/www/magento2, enter:

ls /var/www/magento2/var/session

If there are files in that directory, you must set permissions; if there are no files in that directory, you can skip the remainder of this topic and continue with Step 4. Upgrade.

To set file system permissions before upgrade:

  1. Log in to your Magento server as, or switch to, the Magento file system owner.
  2. Enter one of the following commands:

    • One Magento user (typical of shared hosting):

      cd <your Magento install dir>
      find var -type f -exec chmod u+w {} +
      find var -type d -exec chmod u+w {} +

      If you don’t have access to a command line, use a file manager tool provided by your hosting provider to set permissions.

    • Two Magento users:

      cd <your Magento install dir>
      find var -type f -exec chmod g+w {} +
      find var -type d -exec chmod g+ws {} +
      chown -R :<web server group> .

      For example, on CentOS where the web server group is typically apache:

      cd /var/www/html/magento2
      find var -type f -exec chmod g+w {} +
      find var -type d -exec chmod g+ws {} +
      chown -R :apache .
