Error: Can't call method "Content" on an undefined value at /usr/share/request-tracker3.6/html/Elements/MyRT line 75

Currently running RT Version 3.4.1 and the MySQL 5.0 database (rt3) has
been imported into the new 3.6.1 install.
Install of 3.6.1 on a new debian-etch box using: apt-get install
request-tracker3.6 and apt-get install rt3.6-apache2

Apache is up and running and can login with credentials that work with
3.4.1.
I am aware that the upgrade scripts should solve this error but they are
not and my patience is shot.
Using a new MySQL database called “rtdb” works fine so I know the
problem is with the upgrade.

I am running the following upgrade scripts.
#/usr/sbin/rt-setup-database-3.6 --action schema --datadir
/etc/request-tracker3.6/upgrade/3.5.1/ --dba rt3 --dba-password “password”;
/*Creating database schema.
Couldn’t find schema file for mysql
*/
/#usr/sbin/rt-setup-database-3.6 --action acl --datadir
/etc/request-tracker3.6/upgrade/3.5.1/ --dba rt3 --dba-password “password”;
/Couldn’t find ACLS for mysql in /etc/request-tracker3.6/upgrade/3.5.1//

/#usr/sbin/rt-setup-database-3.6 --action insert --datadir
/etc/request-tracker3.6/upgrade/3.5.1/ --dba rt3 --dba-password “password”;

What am I missing? I would appreciate any assistance in troubleshooting
this issue.

Thanks.
