JIRA Startup Failed on migration to jira 7


I just tried migrating from JIRA 6.3 to JIRA 7.2

Everything LOOKED like it was going ok, until after about 10 minutes of the starting up animation in the browser, it ends with this message

I ran stop-jira.sh, which killed tomcat. Then I ran on the db

update pluginstate set pluginenabled='true';

What can I do from here?
