If you tell it to do the database upgrade, it should automatically do
a database backup first.  If your database is very large, that can
take a long time, and in the past, that has fooled people into
thinking that mythfrontend was not working and they have killed it and
restarted it, then said no to the upgrade question.  My database now
takes at least 20 minutes to do a backup (it is around 19 Gbytes).

To see what is happening, before you say yes to the upgrade question,
do this:

cd /var/log/mythtv
tail -f mythfrontend.log

You should see messages about the database backup and upgrade process.
Hopefully, there will be some clues as to why it does not work.
