Hi Myrna,

This could be DERBY-1 which prevented DB creation on OS X and BSDs with
a buggy JVM. You can check whether you have a buggy JVM by booting a
database with 10.3 or trunk and see if derby.log contains this message
(added in DERBY-2020):

------------ BEGIN ERROR MESSAGE -------------

LogToFile.checkJvmSyncError: Your JVM seems to have a problem with
implicit syncing of log files. Will use explicit syncing instead.
------------ END ERROR MESSAGE -------------

So what happens, is not that the upgrade fails, but that 10.0 and some
of the 10.1 releases (don't remember which) can't create the database.
