I upgraded our servers from JIRA 6.4.11 to 7.2.3 using the file atlassian-jira-software-7.2.3-x64.bin
After the upgrade, I cannot create projects with a type "Software". I can create "Business" projects though. I however need "Software" Projects much more than "Business" projects

Could you check its state under "manage applications"? Are there other parts of Software not working (boards and Software related gadgets)?
There was a problem with the builtin plugin that handles licenses - I had to re-install the whole JIRA server when I tried to use the restore functionality and it merrily removed all the projects but then refused to create new software projects - 20% restore done and the system balked. All users were locked out; complete lockup.

Added the privilege for REFERENCES, restarted JIRA and now I can create Software Projects again.
