SQL upgrade from 2012 to 2016 hangs

during the final stage of the upgrade on the sqlenginedbstartconfigaction_upgrade_configrc_cpu64  screen, the installation process appears to stuck, no error message no progreess so far.

however by looking into ERROLOG, it shows the sql process is busy upgrading databases etc, leave the process running for about 30 minutes and it finishes successfully.

it is bit confusing though since there is absolutely nothing else indicatign the progress is not stuck... even the errorlog only get updates after a few minutes.
