I am trying to migrate my catalog from Lightroom Classic CC to the new Lightroom CC and getting a non-helpful error message directly after checking file paths.

https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/migration-fails-with-unhelpful-error
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-cc-catalog-migration-error-unknown

MY ENVIRONMENT
- MacBookPro11,3 with MacOS 10.13 with a SSD formatted with encrypted APFS
- Lightroom Classic CC 7.0 [ 1140024 ]
- Lightroom CC 1.0 [ 20170919-1412-ccb76bd ] (Sep 19 2017)
- "Classic"-Catalog at default place /Users//Pictures/Lightroom/Lightroom Catalog.lrcat
- about 30.000 image files (mostly NEF raws and JPEGs) of total size 500 GB
- Image files stored on connected samba share smb://._smb._tcp.local// (running on a Synology NAS with latest firmware).
- CC originals folder location changed to an external spinning disk hard drive (size: 1 TB). Connected via USB. Formatted as MacOS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted).
- free space of main harddrive close to 150 GB

PREPARATIONS
- strictly followed  https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/using/migrate-to-lightroom-cc.html
- double checked if samba share and USB disk are connected and accessible/writable

STEPS 
1.) start Lightroom CC via Terminal using option "-tracebacks"
2.) start migrating catalog via UI of Lightroom CC. (File -> Import -> Migrate LR catalog)
3.) migration wizard starts up and checks all file paths. At least the maximum count of my images is reached before the message appears.

OBSERVED BEHAVIOR
- Error message: "Migration was not successful. No one is more unhappy about this than us. Except you probably. Please contact our support team." 
- For Terminal output see end of this post
- Migration is terminated

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
- Successful migration ;-) or at least some useful information that could help me (or support) to resolve the issue.
- Some log file that could provide more information. Where could I look on what actually went wrong?

Hi folks! 

It is my pleasure to announce that we have released a new version of Lightroom CC tonight. We believe the new version has fixed this issue. Update your application to the new Lightroom CC 1.2 and give it a try.


Enjoy!
