Suddenly unlicensed and unable to activate (solved)

I have to admit I am only an occasional user of the Daz Studio Octane plug-in, however ...
Started Daz Studio up a bit earlier and got presented with a message saying my current version was no longer supported and I needed to upgrade (I was using 4.00.XB3. I thus happily downloaded the latest stable version of the plugin and the standalone. Installed the plugin and it now tells me that the licence needs upgrading via the website:

Apart from anything else - just where and what form does this upgrade take? Checking my licences shows I have the 2 licenses, which are active on the computer I am trying to use them on. A vain effort was spent unlocking them to see if that helped. Needless to say it didn't. However the standalone licence went back to being active on the computer after I installed the standalone and tried to activate it. So the license is 'active' on the web and yet not on the computer.
Is there something that has changed or is this just a bizarre glitch that will be ironed out or correct itself?

What you see is what I got. No other red buttons than the ones in the screen shot. It used to work, so I am not sure if I have already done that, some time in the past (around last October when I downloaded V4 of the standalone and plugin for the first time.
And thank you for the swift response.

Can you try upgrading your license again?

-Go to https://home.otoy.com/render/octane-render/purchase/
-Select "Upgrade" in the top menu.
-Click on "UPGRADE NOW" next to "Upgrade existing licenses to OctaneRender 4".
-Select the licenses you want to upgrade and confirm.

Thank you, I just found the link when I had a look at the announcement of the latest 4.02 release. Very similar page layout to the one I screenshotted above! Issue now resolved I am glad to say.
