I am considering upgrading from Lightroom 5 to a Lightroom CC subscription plan, so I downloaded the 7-day trial of the 'all-new' Lightroom CC. Unfortunately, I ran into problems immediately. When trying to migrate my catalog, I get this error message.
How am I supposed to upgrade the catalog with a newer Lightroom version if I can't even migrate the catalog to a newer Lightroom version?

You just have to download the trial of Lightroom Classic 7 and let it upgrade your catalog, and then Lightroom CC will quite happily migrate that LR7 catalog. You can uninstall Classic 7 when you're done.
So because you are running an older version your catalog will be in a format, not recognized by the new Lr CC.
I would suggest you download Lr Classic as a trial. That will upgrade your existing catalog.
You can then use the migration tool.
If you have Creative Cloud desktop installed, you can get Lr Classic from the Apps tab.
If not start by installing Creative Cloud from the link below.
