Shipping not working after 1.5 -> 1.7 SSH upgrade

Hi everyone, I have quite a few items on a Magento store which was running a 1.5 fresh install. We use FedEx for shipping, and it recently stopped working. I was told that FedEx no longer supported 1.5 so I ran the following commands in the Magento root to upgrade to 1.7

find . -type f -exec chmod 777 {} \;
find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
rm -rf var/cache/* var/session/*
chmod 550 ./mage
./mage mage-setup .
./mage config-set preferred_state stable
./mage list-installed
./mage list-upgrades
./mage install Mage_All_Latest --force
php shell/indexer.php reindexall
find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

Now everything states that it is fully upgraded when I list the installed modules and possible upgrades (there are none). However, the shipping problem is still not fixed. I have entered all 4 required elements into the FedEx module and it still gives me problems. In addition, I am now seeing this for every session in the debug log…

Honestly, I have no idea what is going on… to my untrained eye it looks like a failed upgrade. Could anyone please help?
