    You can perform direct migration from 4.5.5 and later to latest version. The issue is when you want to migrate from versions older than 4.5.5. Then good approach is migrate first to 4.5.5, then to latest.

    If you are using foreign keys, the update may fail. One workaround is to use the legacy mode. To do it, set the value of the property initialization.legacy.mode to true in your file.

    If you do not want to, or cannot use the legacy mode, remove foreign keys temporarily and re-add them after the update process is finished.
