Upgrading old Drupal, Part 2: Show module names which causes Drupal update failed, and resolve it.

I was upgrading an old drupal 6 site to drupal 7.
Lots of modules and themes need to be upgraded at the same time. Some are easy, but some not when it comes to dependency issues.
I keep getting Some of the pending updates cannot be applied because their dependencies were not met. error when running Database update. OK I know there's some problems with module, but which module(s)?

Upgrading old Drupal, Part 1: No content shown, unable to login, missing modules, and resolve it.

I was upgrading an old drupal 6 multi-site to drupal 7. The main (default) site has been upgraded for years, all other sub-sites had been disabled or moved out before the migration.
But I recently want to re-enable a long-ignored old sub-site, which takes me a while. I got no content shown, unable to login, missing modules.

And This is How To Resolve Them.
