SyncUpgradeTimerJob: sleeping for 10 seconds–SharePoint 2013 March PU

So whilst in the process of attempting to install the March PU for SharePoint 2013, the SharePoint Technologies Config wizard seemed to be taking a very long time to complete.  So long in fact that it never completed and just seemed to be hung on Step 9 of 10, upgrading SharePoint 2013.

Looking at the pcsdiagnostic logs there were a lot of the following events,  and pretty much nothing else:

SyncUpgradeTimerJob: sleeping for 10 seconds

No matter how many times I reran the wizard the same thing happened.  However, running the following command forced the upgrade through:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\BIN>psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait –force

After this I reran the Config wizard again (just to be sure) and the farm was finally upgraded.

Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website such as yours take
a massive amount work? I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.
