I've tried that, but it is still showing "Account migration required". 
This time the "RingID:" field is blank though


Here is the command I used:

rm -rf ~/.config/ring ~/.local/share/ring \
  ~/.local/share/gnome-ring ~/.cache/ring \
  ~/.cache/gnome-ring

Then I tried:


dconf reset -f /cx/ring/


and now it starts.

I don't have Google Play or a Google account on my phone

In the app, I press "Link another device to this account" and it asks
for a password.  I don't remember ever creating a password.  I tried a
couple of passwords and each time it says "Please wait... Publishing new
account information" and after a few seconds "Couldn't unlock your
account using the provided password."
