Bamboo bootstrap failed: Unable to run pre-bootstrap upgrade tasks as your support period has ended.

I just tried to update my instance of bamboo to 5.9.7.  After doing an export and a backup I ran the install.  When I tried to bring the website up it gave me an error about finding a java bean.

So I deleted the bamboo directory and installed from scratch, pointing to my home directory.  Now I get the above error.

I have a valid license, but it doesn't allow me to install it anywhere.  Any idea's?

Try pasting the licence directly into appropriate section of bamboo.cfg.xml file in your home directory.
