What Aperture version are you upgrading from and how large is your Aperture library? For a really large Aperture Library the upgrade can seem to hang for hours. If your library is close to a Terabyte let the upgrade run.
Sometimes the upgrade of the Aperture library hangs, if the Aperture library has a corruption and needs repairing. In that case try the Aperture library First Aid Tools and repair or rebuild the Aperture Library before trying to upgrade.
Launch Aperture with the ⌥⌘-key combination firmly held down and select "Repair Database" from the panel.

Thank you for your reply.
The Aperture Library folder is 15 GB and was created in Aperture 3.1.3. I didn't realize there would be such a problem reinstalling my photos. I tried the First Aid Tools. It would open Aperture with a new library but not the older version, original library.

I get a window that says the photos need an upgrade. When clicked, I get the following message: There was an error opening the database for the library “~/Pictures/Aperture Library.aplibrary”.
