Comment (by hellofromTonya):

 reported on Slack] the same problem. Copying the message here.

 * After clicking "Update", it takes ages (to be exact) for the "Update
 WordPress" page to load and show the steps for the update process.
 * As soon as it finally shows the page, my `debug.log` appeared with:

 PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Class 'Requests_Exception' not found in
 Stack trace:
 #0 <path>\wp-includes\Requests\Transport\cURL.php(177):

 In my case, I was upgrading from 5.0.14 > 5.9.0 Beta 1.

 @costdev can you check if the cURL file is named `cURL.php` or `Curl.php`
