Error when running FreePBX Distro Conversion Tool to new machine

Hello I am running into issues when running the Distro Conversion tool. I am trying to migrate to new hardware running FreePBX Starting the script on the new machine works but when I run it on the Donor machine it errors out. Based on what I found on a different post I went in and removed all the images that were present on the system yet it still fails.

Please note most tasks should be handled through the FreePBX UI.
You can access the FreePBX GUI by typing one of the above IP’s in to your web browser.

FreePBX Conversion Wizard

The FreePBX Conversion Wizard needs to be run on two machines, firstly on the
NEW machine, which must be an ACTIVATED FreePBX Distro machine, and then it
must be run on the DONOR machine.
The DONOR machine is the machine that is currently processing calls, and is
the machine that will be migrated to the NEW machine. No changes will be made
to the DONOR machine, and this script will not stop or restart any services
that may cause an outage.
If this is the NEW machine, just push ‘Enter’ to prepare this machine

Enter Conversion ID (leave blank if this is NEW): 4b10701e-d6c7-4694-8aaa-3dd51388d8a9

Some directories are large, and may slow down the backup. You can copy these
directories across later, after the conversion is complete. This will speed up
the conversion. Answering 'Y’es will embed them in the backup that is sent to
the new machine
