typically this error indicates couple of things.

  • Check if you can connect to the SQL server from SharePoint Server, looks like issue with connection.
  • Make sure ports are open between SharePoint and SQL server
  • Also Make sure the account running the config wizard has proper permission on SQL server
  • also make sure SQL server is up and running, may be try to reboot it.
  • SQL Server and SQL Server Browser services are running on SQL box.
