Error updating from 2.7.3

Hi all,
I have just updated to version 3.0 from 2.7.3 and I am getting the following error when I try to open a project directory.

createComponent() returns null for: class com.intellij.lang.javascript.index.JavaScriptIndex

Steps I have done:
I have imported nothing from previous pycharm.
I have cleared the .idea directory of the project.
The problem persisted.

Java Oracle JDK 1.7.0_25
Ubuntu 12.10 64bit.

The same message appears when creating a new django project.
The message's window title is:

Error Loading Default Project

Any ideas?

Please attach the log file (~/.PyCharm30/system/logs/idea.log)

actually /log/ singular not /logs/

Hi Dmitry,

I have attached the log file created by:
Open PyCharm.
Open Directory.
Selected directory (containing django project without .idea dir)
Error displayed.

The characters you will probably can't read (Greek Locale) means:

There is no such file or directory.

I figured out what it was.
I have copied the version 3 files on top of the previous version.
Obviously an old file has been left back and was causing all the trouble.
Installing in a clean directory fixed the issue.

If anyone else has the same issue, "clean install" is the answer.
