    Upgrading from 2.8.3 to 2.8.4 using the automatic upgrade feature. The last line from the status said that the database was being upgraded and then nothing, hit anything else and I get

    Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

    Any help on my next move? Can I do a manual upgrade? Thanks.

    Spoke too soon - the auto-upgrade timed out and failed but the script recognised that and I was prompted to attempt again or install manually. Tried again with the auto-upgrade and this time it worked. Given that my blog is on a hosting package where they oversell the servers, I wouldn't be surprised that that was the cause as service can be patchy.
