Comment (by dd32):

 A database update being required won't block non-administrators access.

 However, the 4.2 branch includes a potentially long-running database
 update (the switch to utf8mb4) which after some bugs were fixed in 4.2.3,
 may have only just applied to a site. If that update is running in the
 background process, the WordPress admin may have hit a locked DB
 temporarily while that update took place.
