Im in almost done with the process of migrating to new server so I went ahead and upgraded the old server

The upgrade log is full of these errors

[20140211.091039] [13541] Use of uninitialized value $n in abs at /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/perl/514/lib/perl5/cpanel_lib/ line 301.

And received this email

An error was detected which prevented updatenow from completing normally.
