Fix for the issue:
In this blog I am focussing only on the error which is preventing the report file to be generated.
If you are facing the screen as of below:
C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedWeb Server Extensions12CONFIGPreUpgradeCheck
Open the OssPreUpgradeCheck xml file and delete the entry highlighted below. It has to be done 2 times as this entry is present 2 times 1 highlighted and 1 below.
Run the preupgradecheck again and this time it will give you the success to generate the report file.
