The usual reason for this is that you have a mismatched pairing of
hypervisor / tools. Check you aren't running the old tools (including
libraries) with the new hypervisor or vice versa.

One particular gotcha might be the libraries -- make sure the new ones
have been installed in the expected location and that xl is linking
against them at runtime (e.g. run with ldd).
