I think I encountered the same thing when trying to go from CentOS 7 to 
CentOS 8.

I'm pretty sure I ended up invoking thunderbird manually with the 
--allow-downgrade option.  After it was satisfied with my copied 
profile, it would then subsequently run OK with a normal invocation 
(using the desktop icon, etc.)
