I have updated one of my D8 sites to the latest stable version - 8.3.1 using drush up. When applying the database update, the update fails with the following error message:

Failed: LogicException: Missing bundle entity, entity type block_content_type, entity id basic. in Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityType->getBundleConfigDependency() (line 882 of /var/www/sitename/core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/EntityType.php).

This has only happened on 1 site, so it's possibly a config issue specific to the site.

How do I manually create the missing bundle entity?

    Sounds like you have configuration (e.g. form/view displays) that reference the non-existing basic block content type bundle. Export your configuration, search for basic and then probably delete and re-import that config. – Berdir Apr 24 '17 at 19:44

    Yes I remember testing some form config then I uninstalled the yaml form module so it looks some config is still there. I will have a look and try the suggestion but that should work. Thank You. – Rick Bergmann Apr 25 '17 at 16:53

To get passed this error I deleted some rows in the config table:

delete from config where name in ('block_content.type.basic', core.entity_view_display.block_content.basic.default', field.field.block_content.basic.body');

    When I issued drupal module:install <module> I was getting the following error: [ERROR] Missing bundle entity, entity type media_bundle, entity id file. Basing on the answer above I deleted the related config with drupal config:delete active to continue: media.type.file – duru Jan 20 '18 at 22:39

    The comment below is a ugly workaround. – jepster Aug 2 '18 at 8:17
