This issue is similar to a false positive. The tool indicates that the conditions for upgrade are not met, even though an upgrade might succeed.

If the tool reports a failure for this check, refer to KB87731 and check the cipher suite order on the SQL server. If necessary, modify it as the article instructs. Once the cipher suite order is correct, the upgrade to ePO 5.3.3 or 5.9 can succeed.
