You need to upgrade your server. The release notes(1) have good
instructions on doing so, make sure you read the instructions for each
version between where you are and where you're going to. You'll want
to do the full dump/load cycle(2) for maximum benefit, although it
will require more disk space (but only during the upgrade; you'll get
the space back when you delete the dumpfiles after you've completed &
verified the upgrade) and more time.

Since you're getting a message about mergeinfo, you're using at most
1.4 on the server and at least 1.5 on the client; get up to 1.6
