Error moving from Quicken Essentials to New Version

I was using Quicken Essentials for about 10 years now on Mac Lion, I recently upgraded to Catalina and can no longer use my old Quicken Essentials. I bought the new starter version but during the 'Start from a Quicken Essentials file' part I get this error: "an error occurred during persistent store migration". I did some troubleshooting from another post and the data integrity check was ok. Not sure if there are other options to try?

    Actually looks like I've found a reasonable solution. Although Quicken had an error reading the .quickendata file, I was able to import it into Moneydance, I was then able to export a QIF from Moneydance and import that into the new Quicken.
