No, it's usually because you removed all extensions located in
permanent directory (extension/repository/ folder). Looks like you
cleaned too much stuff. The repair message is not about missing status
but about a database with a lot of documents and not a single
extension registered.

There is no such "blocker" error AFAIK. It does indicate you that this
version is invalid (because this version require WAR version 7.4.1)
but it's not supposed to block you in any way, you should have an
upgrade button.
