First do not target Plone-x.x-latest. Always use a precise version, since a -latest version can be a soft-released one and as such 'not recommended for production'. It is the case currently, if you use 5.1-latest you will get at least one problem that did not exist in 5.1. So install in 5.1 and when 5.1.1 is released do the update.

Now for your problem, install a fresh 5.1 in a new directory with the same add-ons versions than your 5.08. Do the appropriate pinnings as necessary since you installed a half-beta add-on.
If it's not possible you can't update with your add-ons, don't even try. If you absolutely want to migrate you will first have to uninstall the problematic add-ons of your current install.

When your new install starts correctly and you can use your add-ons with the empty new Zodb, stop the new instance and copy the old datafiles at the place where your new datafiles are. Restart your new instance, you should have then to migrate the data.

Hi Gp54321

Thanks for your help.

After disabling the pinned Mosaic Version in the buildout.cfg the upgrade worked.
