Yes, it appears that the change to the GUID index mode that first
appeared in 4.8.0 is the culprit. I don't think anybody really knows why
it fails, but it is believed to be that 4.9.x thinks the GUID index
mode is being used, but the database is still the 4.7.x type.

There have been a few workarounds suggested, but, to my knowledge, the
only real upgrade path is to 'walk' up the versions. From 4.7.x upgrade
to 4.8.x, run this so the database is changed to the GUID index mode
and then upgrade to 4.9.x or higher.
