*org.datanucleus.store.rdbms.exceptions.MissingTableException: Required table missing : "`SKEWED_STRING_LIST`" in Catalog "" Schema "". DataNucleus requires this table to perform its persistence operations. Either your MetaData is incorrect, or you need to enable "datanucleus.autoCreateTables")It's because the deployment script doesn't call the Hive metastore upgrade script.
To manually upgrade the Hive metastore from the 0.9 schema to 0.10 (assuming you are using MySQL for the Hive metastore as recommended by Cloudera):
cd /usr/lib/hive/scripts/metastore/upgrade/mysql sudo mysql --user=root use metastore; source upgrade-0.9.0-to-0.10.0.mysql.sql
