bosh-init fails to create vm during upgrade

I am trying to upgrade the bosh director using bosh-init. My existing director uses 3155 stemcell and bosh version is BOSH 1.3071.0.
I am able to upgrade to 3262 stemcell version and BOSH 1.3262.4.0, but after upgrade the bosh vms are lost.

So to retain them I tried using the same stemcell version 3155. But it fails with the below error:
