I get the following error after a database update. It looks like it completes the update by displaying Completed 8 of 8 but it doesn't run the updates. Any help is appreciated.

Failed: Drupal\Component\Plugin\Exception\PluginNotFoundException: The "media_edit_action" plugin does not exist. in Drupal\Core\Plugin\DefaultPluginManager->doGetDefinition() (line 52 of /srv/bindings/ae21023ced6d43099409c0fbbeded25e/code/core/lib/Drupal/Component/Plugin/Discovery/DiscoveryTrait.php).

This is what the updates need to run.

System module

Change plugin IDs of actions.
Clear caches due to schema changes in core.entity.schema.yml.

Views module

Update dependencies for moved bulk field plugin.
Add additional settings to the entity link field and convert node_path usage to entity_link.
Add placeholder settings to string or numeric filters. Fix cache max age for table displays.
Include views data table provider in views dependencies.

I believe that action at some point became deprecated and was removed from the media_entity module. However, the configuration lingered and is blocking Drupal update from completing successfully.

What worked for me was to go the the Admin > Configuration > Development > Configuration Synchronization > Updates Report (menu tab).

If you view the Full Report, then you can see that the config for the media_edit_action is still present.

Use the pulldown menu on the right to delete that config.

Delete the media_edit_action config

When you run update again, then it should complete successfully.

Hope this helps!
