  • Make sure that you PHP is configured to have at least 2GB or Unlimited (-1) RAM as maximum memory. Also with my experience with Magento version upgrades, I learnt that is is a good idea to replace you composer.json with default one for version you upgrade from and then after upgrade reinstall any extensions you need via composer which support your new Magento version
