      Description

      STEPS TO REPRODUCE

      1. Create an older instance of XWiki (e.g. 8.4.6 and/or 10.11.9)
      2. Close the instance
      3. Go to the newer instance (11.6 or 11.6.1) and copy/cut the
        [...]webapps\xwiki

        folder and replace it (first delete the old one) in the same location on the older version

      1. Start XWiki and follow the Distribution Wizard through the upgrade process

      EXPECTED RESULTS

      The upgrade process is completed successfully without errors.

      ACTUAL RESULTS

      As the instance is initializing, there are encountered some consistent warnings/errors in console.
      The database fails to be migrated and the browser gets 'HTTP ERROR 500'.

      However, when upgrading from XWiki 10.11.9 to 11.6.1, there are encountered almost the same errors, the instance is initialized, but it's still not being properly migrated (screenshots attached).

      Please also find attached the full logs from upgrading XWiki 8.4.6 to 11.6.1 on MySQL 5.7 and from XWiki 10.11.9 to 11.6.1 on HSQL.

      The issue does not reproduce when upgrading to XWiki 11.5 or 11.3.2.
