​So something went wrong on that upgrade from 3.6 to 4.0 and  it was not a
good idea to do another upgrade when previous one went wrong. Anyway to
confirm that could you please share with us also upgrade log between 3.6
and 4.0? Also how did you do the upgrade (especially what OS have you used
on 3.6 and if upgrade was done using engine-backup or in-place)?

More details about upgrade options from 3.6 to 4.0 can be found at:

​So from current log I can see that upgrade from 3.6 to 4.0 was not
successfully finished and that's why you had issues during upgrade on
Personaly I'd recommend you to get back into 3.6 (either by restoring from
backup (if you performed in-place upgrade) or shutting down new host and
starte pervious 3.6 host (if you performed upgrade using engine-backup) and
do upgrade to 4.0 again​. And if upgrade from 3.6 to 4.0 is not successful,
please share the logs again.
