Matomo upgrade issues: Mysqli prepare error: Unknown column 'login' in 'where clause'

I am upgrading from matomo 4.2.1 to 4.5.0. using the manual 3-step option. After extracting the file and adding permissions, I returned to the browser to and entered login parameters. On pressing enter key, I got this error: “Mysqli prepare error: Unknown column ‘login’ in ‘where clause’”. I need help understanding what this mean and how can I fix it? Thank you.
