Sorry, using 2.8.0 here.
To find which version to convert to, did you just use trial & error?

Please always tell what LilyPond version you use.
Using 2.8.5, I tried to convert the file and noticed that it
was the conversion between versions 2.5.18 and 2.5.21 that required manual
intervention. Therefore, you can do convert-ly --to=2.5.18 ...
Manually edit the file and add
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *) 2 4)
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *) 3 4)
below #(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * * *) 1 4)
and change the version number in the file to 2.5.21.
Then, just run convert-ly again and it will do the conversion
from 2.5.21 to the current version without any further problems.
Note that I haven't tried to actually process the file, so there
may be some further problems that convert-ly didn't handle at all.

I'm trying to use convert-ly to update
However, when I do, I'm given some nasty errors, which don't really mean
a lot to me. My question... is it worth the time trying to tinker with
the source file to get convert-ly to accept it, or should I just convert
