Hello I followed the simple instructions on this page:
1) download and upload ACF Pro
2) activate ACF PRO
3) deactivate ACF 4.3.9 and all addons
But I find no fields after PRO activation
if I deactivate PRO previous ACF 4 and addons fields are still there
NOTE: I have fields created both with repeater and flexible content field addons, but no field is showing, not even simple true/false or Wysiwyg fields.
what is wrong?
I was getting the same issue here with a fresh version of 5.1.6. Looking through the
admin/update.php it seems that the Database Upgrade prompt has been removed. I’ve hacked together a way of triggering this database upgrade.
* Replace the admin/update.php page
* Go to yoursite.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=acf-field-group&page=acf-upgrade
* Revert admim/update.php to it’s original version.
This is triggered on each page load so don’t refresh it!
I would have liked to fix it up properly but I am little pushed for time this evening and just wanted to get my fields up and running.
Hope it helps.
For future readers, this has definitely been fixed. Upgrading from v4 to v5 is working perfectly with no hickups.

I followed the route thisislawatts wrote about and now it works just fine.

I disabled ACF 4 before doing the database upgrade for v5 Pro and found my field groups had disappeared.
The ‘Upgrade Database’ prompt checks an option named ‘acf_version’ in wp_options, so I reverted that to my 4.x version, enabled both the 4.x and 5.x plugins as per the upgrade documentation, and the Upgrade Database prompt reappeared and ran successfully.
