BDA 4.5 to 4.6 Upgrade Fails on Step 5. The symptoms look like:

1. The Mammoth upgrade with "./mammoth -p" fails with an error like:

**********************************************

2. The out file on Node 4: /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/hue_superuser.out shows a problem creating the Hue super user like:
