In general you should not run a Cassandra version X.Y.Z in production where
Z < 5. Although I notice down thread that this cluster is not serving a
critical business function... :)

As you have discovered, you also should not generally try to upgrade across
more than one major version.

I would probably file a JIRA with relevant details/log snippets. It is
quite possible that this is expected, major version upgrades
semi-frequently spam logs with non-pathological error messages.
