Hi Cristiant,

One of the major changes between EPrints 3.3.x and EPrints 3.4.x is the 
introduction of flavours so that EPrints can specialise to be a 
publications repoistory, data repository, Open Education repository or 
potentially something else.  If you are upgrading a publications 
repoistory this requires adding a file to your archive's cfg/cfg.d/ 
directory called 00_flavour.pl with the following contents:

$c->{flavour} = 'pub';

Please follow the instructions at 
https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwiki.eprints.org%2Fw%2FUpgrading_3.3.12%252B_to_3.4&data=04%7C01%7C%7C9c423b4e7f2b41a9f2ba08d8742e4458%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0%7C0%7C637387089345264253%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=T9XvQMwKD2k9mQEi4jRjabRuWHQLljHuUr1KkHg68o0%3D&reserved=0 as the 
instructions you are following are really just designed for moving 
and/or a minor upgrade of an EPrints repository whereas an upgrade to 
3.4.x requires a bit more effort due to some re-organisation of the 
codebase.

Regards

David Newman
