My Meida Module upgrade from 4.0.0 to 4.3.0 failed.

I found the 4.1.0 sql  data provider script contained:
    ALTER TABLE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}Media] ADD [LastUpdatedBy] INT NOT NULL;

I had to remove the "NOT NULL" because I am using the media module and have records in the media table.

Here is the first part of the error that I was getting:
SQL Execution resulted in following Exceptions: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: ALTER TABLE only allows columns to be added that can contain nulls, or have a DEFAULT definition specified, or the column being added is an identity or timestamp column, or alternatively if none of the previous conditions are satisfied the table must be empty to allow addition of this column. Column 'LastUpdatedBy' cannot be added to non-empty table 'Media' because it does not satisfy these conditions.

you should update all latest dates, e.g. by running the following statement:
UPDATE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}Media] SET LastUpdatedBy = 1 WHERE LastUpdatedBy Is Null
and reenforce Not Null constraint.

I have to reiterate what Sebastian said. In version 4.1, you shouldn't have any NULL values in that field. The query that Sebastian suggested is great, but make sure that you have a user with the ID of 1 before you run it.
