I have tried to migrate a website in Joomla from version 1.5 to 2.5 using jUpgrade but I received an "undefined migrating" error:

    Welcome to Pro Webmasters on SE. This is a great bunch of folks here. I do not know Jommla, but clearly this is a database schema incompatibility. There is a missing column on table j25_users. Is there possibly a required intermediate upgrade? – closetnoc Jul 7 '14 at 5:40

Joomla 1.5's users table structure was this: http://www.torkiljohnsen.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/04/joomla_15_database_schema.png

And 3 is this http://docs.joomla.org/Tables/users

It looks like somewhere "rawpassword", "blog" and "newsletter" have been added to your database. My guess would be that you've installed a badly-coded extension that has changed the core database, since I can find no reference to these ever having been part of Joomla.

To narrow the problem down, I'd perhaps download your site and do a text search in the files for "rawpassword" to see if you can find the offending extension - see if there is a .sql file that adds it.

(NB For security, I would recommend you remove the username and password value fields in the error message you have posted)

Column rawpassword does not exist in 2.5. I am guessing it existed in 1.5. You can manually create such a column in the backend for 2.5 and continue with the upgrade. Once upgrade is done, delete that column.

I haven't actually tried this but it might work. If you have a backup of 1.5 before upgrade, there is no harm trying things out.
