Welcome to how Ruby displays syntax errors. The language is so
flexible that it provides confusing diagnostics. This is why I compile
and test after only a few edits.

Post your whole file. Something on the line before this one left the
parser not expecting a symbol.

You might have successfully migrated up as far as you can. When you’re all migrated up, rake db:migrate does that.
