I installed the last CU (October 2020). Our SysAdmin used to upgrade the system by using the psconfig.exe and always used the -force flag, which in my opition is not the best way to do it. This time I wanted to try to use the wizard, which fails on the step 9 of 10: Upgrading SharePoint Products.

In the event log I find:

Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance (d250035e-48e4-402b-8818-1eb515ed35af).
Reason: ActivatingTopology information could not be fetched from SearchTopologyActivationInfo.
Technical Support Details:

   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance.Synchronize()
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ApplicationServerJob.ProvisionLocalSharedServiceInstances(Boolean isAdministrationServiceJob)

The ULS says:

Topology Rollback failed. Will try again. Meanwhile, topology activation will not be possible: System.InvalidOperationException: ActivatingTopology information could not be fetched from SearchTopologyActivationInfo.

Any idea about the problem?
