I have upgraded from JIRA 8.6.1 to 8.18.1 and now JIRA will not start up.
I followed the normal installation instructions from the atlassian-jira-core-8.18.1-x64.bin file and this gave no errors. Previous similar upgrades have worked fine.
The only error I have is the following in catalina.out
2021-07-28 19:12:45,322+0100 JIRA-Bootstrap FATAL [c.a.jira.startup.JiraStartupLogger] Startup check failed. Jira will be locked.
No other log files show any errors. I do have a warning about not using SSL for MySQL connection but I am pretty sure this was present before the upgrade and is not the problem.
This is running on Lubuntu 18.04LTS, using a MySQL database with the mysql driver mysql-connector-java-5.1.46-bin.jar installed in the lib directory.
What can I do to investigate and resolve this issue?
