DO NOT MIGRATE/UPDATE A LIVE SITE

DO NOT UPGRADE/MIGRATE A LIVE SITE

Any VirtueMart update should be made on a backup copy of your site - never on a live site. This allows you to ensure that changes in the VirtueMart code or templating do not affect your site functions, and if they do, to apply any necessary template changes.

Virtuemart 1.1 and 2.0 are COMPLETELY different generations. It is a migration, not an upgrade.
The same with J1.5 and J2.5
