Upgrading in stages did solve the problem.  I downloaded version 3.9.7
which is the version Lifecycle was introduced.  Upgrading using this
version and then upgrading using the latest version of the code completed
without errors.  From the log I believe I am now on 4.2.10.

I'll back up and restore the unupgraded database to reproduce the complete
error message.
