Tried upgrading from FPP 5.4 to 6.1, OS upgrade went okay, but now FPPD won't start.  Here's what the logs show, any idea what could be wrong?

I hate to say this but did you see this?

See above... To use the fppos upgrade, you have to upgrade to the most current version of FPP 5.5 first.
Sometimes applying the fppos 6.1 upgrade a second time will fix the problem.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.

Thanks, I had upgraded from 5.4 to 5.5 before I made the leap to 6.1.  I think I got it working, turns out that 
I'm using an HE123 Cape, which had a blank EEPROM.  I had to get an EEPROM image from here:

https://apps.mortonlights.com/he123-unsigned/

Thanks to Alan Hanson for that!  Once the EEPROM was loaded, I signed it with a 48 port key that I got from shop.falconplayer.com.

A couple of reboots later and it appears to be running, FPPD now runs.  Would have been nice to have a clear message 
about what was wrong, but oh well!
