Upgrade from 5.2 to 6.3 not successfull

I've tried to upgrade from 5.2 to 6.3.4. At the end the installer says "Your installation of JIRA 6.3.4 is now ready and can be accessed via your browser. But in the browser I see the following:

An error occurred performing JIRA upgrade

The data before the upgrade has been exported to /data/atlassian/application-data/jira/export/jira_autoexport_20140821_083236.zip

Where to begin? Where does "action with id 1 already exists for this step" come from?

Now I've tried to upgrade to different versions. Upgrade from 5.2 to 6.0 and to 6.1.8 does work, but not to higher versions. 5.2 -> 6.1.8 -> 6.2 does not work, I get almoust the same error as from 5.2 to 6.3.4. What can I do else?

Regards

Burkhard
