Multisite 6.0.1: Upgrade network stops if it can’t resolve a particular site

In upgrading to 6.0.1 from 5.4.2, the initial part of the upgrade proceeds, so I am assuming the upgrade network portion is being directed by 6.0.1 code.

First, this step, the Upgrade Network, is not obvious and not automatic. If it is skipped by accident, the user could end up with a partially upgraded site and not know it.

Second, Upgrade Network proceeds in reverse alphabetical order across all the sites in the multisite environment. If it comes to a site whose name doesn’t resolve for whatever reason, it simply stops the upgrade process. I had to manually remove these unused sites and load the page again to make the Upgrade Network option reappear and then rerun it.

Both of these bugs should be fixed. The upgrade in multisite should be an atomic operation. It either proceeds 100% or not at all. Second, it shouldn’t be checking whether a given site is online or not. Who cares?
