Do the EPiServer files exist in the GAC? What versions? Look specifically for the failing EPiServer.Shell.UI and it's dependencies EPiServer.Data and EPiServer.Shell (and System.Web.Mvc, version 1). The installer should register them, but doesn't hurt to check.
The files exist in the GAC.
EPiServer.Shell.UI, EPiServer.Data and EPiServer Shell all in version 6.0.318.113 and
System.Web.Mvc in version 1 (I removed version 2, just in case...)
So everything should be fine in the GAC.
Any solution to this problem Claus? I´m currently in the same situation as you were. :/
As far as I remember we ended up making a completely blank site (no standard templates either), attached the database to it and ran the update "through" the blank site. It sounds really wierd, I know, but it has worked for me twice now.
Okay, I did a new CMS 6 R2 installation and after a while this problem occurs. I´ve deleted dlls, re-referenced them, checked that all dll files exist, changed app pool etc. All solutions I could find but no... I post my solution if I find one :)
Just ran into this issue when trying to upgrade CMS5 R2 to CMS 6. Any solution for it yet?
I ran into this problem today. I Installed a new site without database, took the contents from the bin folder of that site and copied it into <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS\6.0.530.0\bin and ran the upgrade again.
i explained it in this blogpost: http://www.christianengvall.se/upgrading-episerver-cms-6/
I am trying to upgrade a site from EPi 5 to 6. The upgrade itself runs fine, but the data migration fails at the same point every time.
I have tried google, but the only usable suggestion was to remove all EPiServer installations, reinstall EPi 6 and try again. Well, that didn't do the trick either.
So any ideas and help will be much appreciated. The output from the deployment center is shown below.
