I started magento 2 upgrade over a half hour ago.

The on screen console log shows:

[2016-04-26 20:45:03 EDT] Job "maintenance_mode {"enable":true}" has been started
[2016-04-26 20:45:03 EDT] Magento maintenance mode is enabled.
[2016-04-26 20:45:03 EDT] Job "maintenance_mode {"enable":true}" has successfully completed
[2016-04-26 20:45:04 EDT] Job "update {"components":[{"name":"magento/product-community-edition","version":"2.0.3"}]}" has been started
[2016-04-26 20:45:04 EDT] Starting composer update...
[2016-04-26 20:45:04 EDT] ./composer.json has been updated

It seems to be hung.

Is it working? How long does it take?

You can upgrade your magento 2 using terminal. With another words, go to magento website, download latest version of magento 2. Upload it to your server. After that exctract it to your root magento folder. That's it. Let me know if you need another help.

  • And it continues to run with the current database intact? No impact to DB or loss of products, sales, orders, customers, etc. @LedianHymetllari ? Apr 27, 2016 at 11:50
  • because my site has been down for 12 hours now. Error 503 Service Unavailable -- Service Temporarily Unavailable The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later. Apr 27, 2016 at 12:02
  • Yes it will run with current database. It will save your orders , customers ando other things that are saved to database. Just back up first your magento files and db, then upgrade it Apr 27, 2016 at 12:03
  • I fixed it via googleing. (For Magento 2) simply delete /{magento site's doc root}/var/.maintenance.flag and the site comes back online Apr 27, 2016 at 12:13
  • I'm going to stick with v2.0.2 -- Magento is way too complex of a system to mess with updates & upgrades. Apr 27, 2016 at 12:16
