SYMPTOM :

=> This problem occurs in case of a partitioned table without any null partitions and contains approximately more than 600 columns in the table

=> Following stacktrace is observed in hive metastore logs

Nested Throwables StackTrace:

        ... 30 more

ROOT CAUSE:

=> Analyze table query updates the statistics in the metastore database

=> Metastore database has a limitation (4000) for the number of the characters that can be updated in the the PARTITION_PARAMS.PARAMS_VALUE

=> Hence, too many number of columns causes a limitation on the number of columns that can be updated

WORKAROUND:

Try increasing the column width for "PARTITION_PARAMS.PARAM_VALUE" column in metastore database.

STEPS:

1] Stop metastore/HS2

2] Back up the DB

3] Try to increase the column width to a reasonable value. In case of Postgres database use the following command,

ALTER TABLE PARTITION_PARAMS ALTER COLUMN PARAM_VALUE TYPE varchar(64000);

4] Start metastore/HS2 again.
