    Look at the topic RESOLVED: Upgrade fails to verify version to see how to clear up the upgrade failure.

    When you installed SQLBackup did you use SQL authentication and use the sa account to run SQLBackup?

    Did you by any chance use 'SQL Server Authentication' mode that the service application will use to log in to the SQL Server while installing the server components? If this is the case then the easiest way to fix this problem is to uninstall the server components and then install it again with the correct sa password.

    If you have registered your SQL Server instance on the SQL Backup UI using SQL Server authentication, you can edit the registration and enter the correct password for sa. This will reconnect the SQL Server instance on the UI.

    For server components, it seems that the upgrade has not happened correctly, uninstall the server components on this SQL Server instance and then install it again. The server components installer can be found in the client install directory and it is named as SQBServerSetup.exe

    Hope this helps.
