take a look at https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=530252.msg3816577#msg3816577 and install from github and report if it works or not.

Thanks for the link to beta 4.  Followed the instructions in the post.  Install proceeded without errors.  Database structure looks like it was all created fine. members table shows my admin user was created. The test forum is at http://scratch.serara.org/forum/index.php [nofollow].

I was unable to login to the admin account that was created with the install.  Error was:
Session verification failed. Please try logging out and back in again, and then try again.

This is the same error as previous installs.  Quit browser and connected again to try a fresh session. Same error. I looked as the sessions table.  Do see one entry.  Session_id field contained this value:

Open for suggestions...

I would try disabling database driven sessions and see if that helps mentioned on previous page a database setting to try.

I'd also try clearing the cookies for that site.

Thanks for the replies.
Cleared cookies and history, no joy.
Made the edit to the smf_settings table:set databaseSession_enable = 0
Was able to login.  Test Post worked.  Logged and and in again, worked.  So it would appear there has been a fix since beta3.  I presume more work is needed to fix this database table session issue...
I will do some testing of the upgrade process on a copy of an existing forum to beta 4 shortly.

Beta 3 is quite old, unfortunately,  with lots of fixes since.

I would focus all testing on the current gh version.

I should point out that my last round of testing was beta 4.  If there is a way to get more current builds from github, I would need a pointer to that process. I'll report on the beta4 upgrade process shortly. Thanks.

the code from github is currently marked "beta 4" even though there will never be an actual beta4 release...
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
