Hi, experts

I am doing the upgrade of SAP R3 4.6C to ECC 2005 SR3 I finished the stage of PREPARE and started Upgrade SapUp with SCROLL mode and I choose resource-minimized strategy. After pass some phases, appear the following error in UCMIG_STATUS_CHK phase:

>> 10:18:57 upgrade: END OF Phase REPACHK1

>> 10:18:57 upgrade: START of Phase UCMIG_STATUS_CHK

SAPup error message

And in the file TP.ECO:

TP returncode summary:
