Many errors while starting Jira 6.2 Upgrade


I'm trying to upgrade Jira from 5.2.5 to 6.2 version but when I execute the .bin file I obtain a lot of error messages like this :
"tar: lib/zi/Antarctica/DumontDUrville : open impossible: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type"

There are so many messages that I can't see the first one.

Are you running Java 1.7.0_latest? A lot of these kind of errors come from running an unsupported Java version. You may also have one or more add-ons that are not compatible with Jira 6.2, so it might be worth upgrading all of the add-ons on the server's filesystem and retrying the upgrade. Be sure and do this in a Dev environment before attempting on a live production instance!
