Upgrading from 7.2.8 to 7.3.5 breaks with exceptions:

PR: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/pull/1057

This fixes an old issue that we were auto-logging in the user with Id '0' when upgrading when this should have only ever happened during new installations. For upgrades, the user is already logged in. This also ensures that no empty/null sections can be added to the user object since this is where the original exception was coming from.
