ambari 2.7.1 to 2.7.3 upgrade failed

When upgrading Ambari from 2.7.1 to 2.7.3, I get these messages with no mention of failure or success:

Any pointers/guidance to fix this is appreciated.

Thanks Geoffrey. I copied the backup of the ambari.properties to expected location and ran the upgrade command again and it worked this time.
