Error upgrading CMS6 R2 to CMS7



I'm trying to upgrade a site from CMS6 R2 to CMS7 using deployment centre and get an error as follows:

At C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\Framework\7.0.859.1\Install\System Scripts\Install Module Package.ps1:157 char:16
+ Add-EPiXmlBlock <<<<  -TargetFilePath $packagesConfigPath -ElementXPath "/packages" -XmlBlock $packageRegistrationXml

The packages.config file exists but only contains an empty <packages> node. Anyone encountered this and/or know how to fix?

In case anyone else encountered this, turns out it's a bug with Deployment Center. If your site uses VPPs on a shared drive this error is generated, moving the VPPs to a local drive prevents the error. Apparentley this has been fixed and will be included in a future patch.
