upgrade from sugarcrm to suitecrm

I am abit lost at this point 8+ hours in this upgrade. any way any help here would be great.

I am on:
SugarCrm 6.5.24
Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.20
MYsql 5.5.52
os ubuntu 14.04 LTS

I am moving a copy so that may current working sugar is intact.

My Issue is that I cannot get to the point where I can upgrade. from 6.5.24 cannot locate a file that will allow for it. Just getting this is not compatible.

Best regards

John H
