I want to upgrade old JIRA instance 6.0.1 to 6.4.

But it should not be more than two steps. Most of the problems were down to add-ons too, if you've got a plain JIRA with few or no add-ons, then 6.0.1 to 6.4.4 is probably a one step upgrade!
It was a version that supported an add-on that was causing problems if we tried to go straight to 6.4
Even with a 3-year old JIRA server, I still think you are likely to be able to go from 6.0 to 6.4 in one step. I'd just allow time to test and step through 6.1, 6.2 or 6.3 as you go, in case you do have problems.
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
