Upgrade OJS 3.0.2 >> OJS 3.1.2-4 runs into fatal error

Here at TU Delft with about 10 journals we work on the upgrade of OJS 3.0.2 using the command line (php tools/upgrade.php upgrade) to OJS 3.1.2-4

We encounter a PHP Fatal error:

PHP Fatal error:  require_once(): Failed opening required

All the files mentioned above are in the file tree. Any ideas what is causing this problem?
