Did you make a backup of your database first before the upgrade?
The particular field it's trying to add should have already been part of
your 2.0 install. It wasn't introduced in 2.5. Actually, there are a number
of them missing.
How long were you on 2.0.x? Did you ever run anything like wipe-evolution,
or hand-modify any parts of the database?
We do provide emergency database repair, where we'll take a database in a
broken state, like this one, and get you a fully-working database for your
target version. This is a paid service we offer (charged either by the hour
as a one-off support incident, or as part of a paid Premium Support
