Ok.  I think what happened is that the schema customizations -changing  
the standard 50ns-mail.ldif file and copied in 60sendmail.ldif from the 
optional schema - have caused an upgrade problem.  Schema update happens 
very early in the upgrade process because subsequent database operations 
are dependent on schema.  Schema update replaced the customized 
50ns-mail.ldif with the standard one.  When the upgrade attempted to 
upgrade the database, it failed due to schema conflicts.  The solution 
is to revert or remove the customized schema files in 
/etc/dirsrv/slapd-INST/schema, then upgrade, then reapply the schema
