 > Everything I experienced with these sites worked exactly as you
 describe, except instead of a 302 to "wp-admin/upgrade.php" I get a 302 to
 which then responds 404.

 Similar issue here after updating from WordPress 5.9.1 to 6.0.1.

 In a plain vanilla test installation I am forwarded to `https://wp.test
 /wp-admin/upgrade.php?_wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2Findex.php` and get a
 `403 Forbidden` error in the browser. Database field `db_version` shows
 `51917`, which according to
 includes/version.php is the db version number of 5.9.1. The field isn't
 changed during the upgrade process.

 An attempt to access the backend fails with another 403 error.

 After changing the `db_version` manually to `53496`, I get full access to
 the backend.

 A user reported [another issue](https://de.wordpress.org/support/topic
 /keinen-zugriff-auf-das-dashboard/) where changing the `db_version`
 manually solved the problem of missing access.
