XF 2.0 The site is currently being upgraded. Please try again later.

Testing the upgrade on my localhost, and I'm getting the following error:
The site is currently being upgraded. Please try again later.
What I did.
1 exported my live files and database
2 installed on my localhost, configured, everything worked
3 copied xf2 RC1 upgrade over my files
4 ran install.php - everything went OK
5 no matter what I'm trying to access, I receive that message

Even tried to re run the install.php, I'm getting:
No upgrade available
You are already running the current version (2.0.0 Release Candidate 1). To do a fresh install, click here.
Rebuild master data
Even tried to rebuild master data, did not help.

I'm quite confused as to what would cause this as the upgrade area and the front end are checking the same variables (though with a slightly different condition). Unfortunately as it's on your localhost it would be hard for us to debug it.

I assume you haven't manually configured any sort of cache in config.php?

Do you have any add-ons installed?

I had an issue with this a few days ago and an add-on that was stuck with an is_processing flag.

You need to edit config php and need to remove paasword for root user, written in that, hope u did that bcoz you successfully setup everything.

That config file located in library folder.
