I am running 5.3.4, and when the app starts, I have errors such as these:

Could you confirm which Apache Tomcat version you are using?
Also, have a look on the following link to be sure that you are running your instance with the right java, tomcat and database versions: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF53/Supported+Platforms
I see. Well, Tomcat 7 is not supported for your current Confluence version, so I'd recommend you to downgrade your Tomcat to version 6.
The following answer thread is related to a similar issue, with very similar error messages you are facing: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/66628/weird-classnotfoundexception-during-startup-of-osgi-bundles
He was running Tomcat 7 with a Confluence version that did not support Tomcat 7. When he downgraded to Tomcat 6 the error messages stopped.
Please, let me know if it fixes your issue as well.
That's awesome! :)
Well, before jumping to the standard procedures to perform an upgrade, we suggest the users to check the plugin compatibility with the next versions to avoid further issues. Having that in mind, you can start the upgrade process by following the standard procedures:
2. Extract the zip/tar.gz file of the latest version of Confluence on the place you choose.
3. Into the extracted folder, open the file confluence-init.properties, which is located at <confluence-install-folder>\confluence\web-inf\classes and edit the line: confluence.home=/usr/local/confluence/home to point to the path where your old home folder of your Confluence current version is.
4. Now start Confluence through your new installation folder.
We also have a documentation about the procedures: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Upgrading+Confluence
Hope it helps :)
I performed the upgrade and it went well. Now, for setting up mail - set it up per my provider - and I still get mail errors when sending test message:
An error has occurred with sending the test email:
com.atlassian.mail.MailException: javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: mail.noip.com, port: 587;
nested exception is:
java.net.SocketException: Network is unreachable
Both those problems suggest that Confluence is on a machine that cannot reach the network it's supposed to be connected to
"Network is unreachable" really does mean "I can't reach a network to talk to", and not being able to reach the marketplace is probably the same problem.
