Are you trying to setup hive metastore for the first time? Based on below it either looks like you are run init from hive client of a different version or you have run it multiple times that entry already committed into mysql db due to first run.

I faced below problem when I did hive upgrade from 1.2.x to 2.0 as part of migration effort to Ambari from the Apache hive.

Error: Duplicate key name 'PCS_STATS_IDX' (state=42000,code=1061) org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaException: Schema initialization FAILED! Metastore state would be inconsistent !! Underlying cause: java.io.IOException : Schema script failed, errorcode 2 Use --verbose for detailed stacktrace. *** schemaTool failed ***

One thing I figured out is rather than running upgrade scripts individually better to do it using below approach.

 export HIVE_CONF_DIR=/usr/hdp/current/hive-metastore/conf/conf.server
 [root@myhost ~]# /usr/hdp/current/hive-server2-hive2/bin/schematool -upgradeSchema -dbType mysql -userName hive_user -passWord 'XXXXXXXXXX'

note: If your hive metadata is important, before you do any upgrade , I strongly suggest to take backup of it using mysqldump utility.
