To resolve the issue, try the step listed below:

[install]
allows_disable=true

Please do the same for all the apps that listed with the aboved errors and re-tried the upgrade

Splunkd daemon is not responding: (u"Error connecting to /services/apps/local/SA-IdentityManagement/enable: ('The read operation timed out',)",)
To fix this one, try the following step:
vi /opt/splunk/etc/apps/SA-IdentityManagement/local/app.conf
[install]
allows_disable = true
state = enabled <----deleted this line

Splunkd daemon is not responding: (u"Error connecting to /services/apps/local/DA-ESS-ThreatIntelligence/disable: ('The read operation timed out',)",)
