Upgrep process is failing during ddlimp process execution, because Oracle database client timed-out and returned error "ORA-00054: resource busy and acquire with NOWAIT specified or timeout expired".

This was noticed in the traces from the upgwiz.log and ddlctl_indx1.log

  During the current upgrade attempt, the Oracle database client timed-out while processing the S_EVT_ACT table, during index creation.

       2014-08-21 16:32:40    Creating  index                   S_EVT_ACT_F26 ... 28:41.969m
   Notice that it was taking longer, and longer to create the indexes, until the error was returned...
       2014-08-21 22:22:20      Creating  index               S_EVT_ACT_F65 ... 32:53.531m

This trace clearly indicates the issue that occurred during the upgrade process:
