While performing upgrade, sometime SharePoint got stuck and continously log message “Sleeping for 10 seconds…” in Upgrade.Log . To solve this issue, just perform following two steps

  1. End the task psconfig.exe,if it is running,  from task manager.
  2. From command prompt, execute the following command psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force
  3. Wait to complete the upgrade. Once done, just browse your SharePoint site as usual, it will be back again:)
