    Description

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Install JIRA using installer in Linux environment.
      2. Perform upgrade using installer.
      3. Process will stops at "Checking for local modification" until it takes up all memory allocated for JIRA instance.

      Diagnosis

      There might be foreign files such as symbolic links in JIRA Home directory that might messed the checking process.

      Workaround

      Locate the symlink by sudo find -type l command in terminal.

      Expected behavior

      Checking should only focus on JIRA configuration files rather than external files.
