It seems that you've run rpm -U during upgrade :( For major versions (and
for some minor versions) you need to re-initdb the data cluster.
Now you have to install the old version again and take a dump before
upgrade. Follow this document for a major version RPM upgrade:
It is safe to remove the existing RPMs since they don't remove database
cluster (but backup is everything :-) )Then install the old version again.
