Bug Description

Branch upgrade jobs keep the database transaction open, which means that if they run for a long time, the connection will be killed due to inactivity/timeout, generating an oops. OOPS-1950UBJ1 is an example.

Either we should forbid upgrade jobs from running so long, or we should ensure that they make a new connection to indicate that they are complete.

The landed branch prevents the transaction from being held too long. I've filed Bug #782341 to track that issue.
