Here's a short summary of today's SharePoint Virtual Summit:
The SharePoint Framework will we included in Feature Pack 2 for SharePoint 2016, which is scheduled for fall 2017.
Until now, Webhooks in SharePoint Online are only available in Document libraries, now they will be extended to sites and lists.
The SharePoint Admin Center gets a nice makeover (still no Managed Paths though).
Finally, we can talk of PowerApps as the legal successor of InfoPath. We will be able to use PowerApps forms inside of SharePoint lists and thus provide users with a rich and customizable UI.
Document Libraries will get the ability to easily submit documents for approval with Flow.

You can avoid this issue if you either
With detached or already upgraded Content Databases PSConfig/PSConfigUI should run successfully.

Today, at Ignite Conference in Chicago, Microsoft released some interesting facts about the new Version of SharePoint called "SharePoint 2016".
You need to use the "Single Server" option and can install SQL Server on the local machine.
Health Analyzer rules will take care of provisioning the services and will complain if a server doesn't meet the role expectations.
5000 items is no longer a threshold, file upload size changes to 10 GB
An item can keep its link even if it is moved to another site collection or renamed
Stay tuned, I will inform you about the other interesting stuff as soon as I can talk about it…
SharePoint 2013 comes with the new Script Editor WebPart which can be used on Wiki/WebPart/Publishing Pages to add Script Code to the page. Using it is fairly simple: add it to the page from the WebPart Catalog.
BUT MySites for example don't contain the Script Editor WebPart in the catalog:
To bring the Script Editor WebPart to the MySite WebPart Catalog (and therefore to all of the subsites like Blog etc.), you can
* download the file "MSScriptEditor.webpart" from any "Web parts" Gallery in your content sites (Settings | Site Settings)
* Now go to the "Web parts" Gallery on your MySite and upload the previously saved file "MSScriptEditor.webpart" to the gallery - change Title and Description and Group as needed ;-)
