Error upgrading cluster from CDH4 to CDH5



I am trying to upgrade cluster from CDH4 to CDH5 since two weeks and I am not able to. Problem is, I installed all packages one by one for CDH5. I uninstalled all CDH4 packages still when I try to upgrade CDH4 cluster from Cloudera Manager admin console, at second step upgrade process not allowing to go next step - (continue button disabled - package installation). I am not sure what extra packages missing for CDH5?


I donot want to go with Parcels at it is taking too much time. Please help,  i want to run my MapReduce programs on Yarn to see difference but this initial setup not allowing me to go further.

Was this cluster installed with Cloudera Manager? Do you have a local Yum repository mirror constructed and configured for Cloudera Manager to use for upgrades?
