Actually there was a change in the upgrade documentation for upgrading 5.4 project to version 6.1. If you are using Ecommerce module there is no direct upgrade path to 6.1 and because of this you have to upgrade to 6.0 first.
Thank you for the valuable feedback for the dll ordering. I will forward it to our documentation team and I hope that it will be fixed as soon as possible.
