You're seeing a couple different bugs here.  First, you have stale  
page cache entries that didn't get removed automatically by the  
upgrade.  Do 'rm -rf public/index.html public/articles' and then you  
should be okay.  The migrations *should* have fixed this for you, but  
clearly you had problems with them.  I've seen a number of people  
with similar issues on the IRC channel; I think we're going to have  
to spend a bit of time testing the upgrade process to make sure that  
it's as trouble-free as possible.  One thing that we need to add is a  
requirement for the user to restart their fastcgi servers after  
finishing the migrations; without doing that, the migration won't be  
complete and random errors will occur.

 From where I'm sitting, this is the last really big thing between us  
and 2.5.
