Are you starting all nodes (near) simultaneously post upgrade?
During cluster upgrade we get the first node to start to do the mnesia
upgrade, others then don't do that part. I think the error you are
seeing is consistent with there being two "first" nodes in the upgrade.
In future we might be able to add better locking around this, although
for various reasons it's not as easy as it sounds.
