Comment 1 Pekka Savola 2000-12-11 16:52:16 EST
Had you deleted and removed /tmp before upgrade?  If so, try mkdir it back.

Is /tmp on a separate partition?

If not, did /tmp/upgrade.log exist from previous upgrade?  If so, try deleting it before upgrade.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-12-12 11:57:45 EST
If /tmp is a symlink you will have this problem. Is that the case?
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-19 16:29:26 EST
Closing due to inactivity.
