Before Upgrade,

1. You Should check for All Transfer and update rules are activated/Deleted.

IF not, do like this

Execute ABAP Program RSUPGRCHECK to locate any inactive UPDATE or Transfer rules.

IF you can found, Activate or delete using by Tcode RSA1.

Check oss note = 449160 from

The RSUPGRCHECK report checks the consistency of generated DDIC objects for BW metadata such as InfoObjects, InfoCubes and transfer rules. It determines whether the DDIC tables required for a BW metaobject actively exist.

The report is mainly intended for the upgrade but may be called at any time to determine inconsistencies in DDIC objects while a BW system is running (for example, also BEFORE you start the upgrade). The report itself does not eliminate any inconsistencies. However, it points to the incorrect objects found in a log.

The report is called automatically (prepare phase) in the upgrade. The user or system administrator must use BW transactions to edit (post-activate) the inconsistent BW objects found since this may otherwise cause errors and terminations due to non-activated DDIC tables during the upgrade.
