When upgrading from a version of mart server prior to 9.8 version to a later version of the mart server you should first upgrade to 9.8 mart server as an intermediate step and then upgrade to the later version.
If you are upgrading from 2020 R1 you need to first upgrade to 2020 r1 sp1 and then to 2020 r2 before you can upgrade to a later version.
Also, when running the mart configure window to update the database please make sure that the mart server service (or server) is stopped while performing the upgrade.

The last step is to upgrade erwin DM to 12.5 version of erwin DM, open each of the models using 12.5 erwin DM, and save them back to the mart portal one time. The next time the models are opened they will open as 12.5 version. This is a one time hit and you can open and save the models as you go so you don't have to do this all at one time - unless you want to.
