This is what finally worked for me: (run from the folder containing the new version of Odoo)

./odoo.py --addons='my_addons_dir' -u all -d MyDBName

The key part was adding the database flag/name along with the "-u all".  Simply using "-u all" without the database name didn't do it.  After running the above command, Odoo was able to find the pertinent External ID and the module installed in the pre-existing database without problems.

V8 is a stable version, so schema is not updated since the release.

It will be the same thing with saas version. Once the freeze done, we don't upgrade the schema.

The only db schema which can change at any time is the master branch.

Sometimes, you can need to update a module to have some fix in view (xml) but never schema SQL or other things which change the API !

Best regards

Hmm... okay, so why would Odoo not know about External ID "purchase.report_purchasequotation_document" when running on Odoo version 8.0_5d58b55, but after updating to version 201501115, everything works?

Strange, This new key has been added in commit https://github.com/odoo/odoo/commit/27fa742a700dfada76658661073f4b002032adf5 (end octobre) So while you don't make a update of "purchase" module, this key was not existing and called. And I don't see why and where another code will use this new key. But if everything works now... good luck :)
