We ended up discovering two database related issues that were preventing the upgrade from completing. The two issues we ran into were 1) duplicate users in the database and 2) content associated with users that were not in the database.

 For your production upgrade you plan to clean up the database ahead of time so the upgrade task will run with the rest of the upgrade, rather than manually afterward with the admin/do-force-upgrade.action.
