    Hi Expert,

    This is SAP Reply about my problem:

    Reply: Dear Said,

    I'm sorry for the long time it took to find the real problem. The colleagues assumed first, that the SUM functionality does something wrong and checked it in this direction. Now it reached the development support and we found, that SUM is in principle doing it right, but got some wrong information from the stack XML.
    And the reason for the wrong information in the stack XML is a bug in the Maintenance Planner planning functionality, which occurs only if the source system is on a very low Support Package level (like yours). You did not do anything wrong, there is nothing that you could have done differently to avoid this problem.
    We will fix this problem on our side.
    In order to let you continue with your upgrade, I have corrected the stack XML. I attached it as MP_Stack_2000092054_2038_corrected.xml. Please use the "Back" button in the SUM UI to go back to the very beginning (you have to press it several times, to jump to the very beginning). Then start the SUM process again with the provided stack XML.
    Please tell us the result.
