glitch with my paid elite membership

I am using serverpress and installing a site on my local server. i installed the wmpu dashboard but it wants me to upgrade my membership to install any of the plugins -- but i am an elite member and in the wmpu dashboard it shows the same -- also i have had an issue with one of my domains previously using the wmpu dashboard to lose all me settings (api key, etc) Since i planned on deleting and recreating that domain I didn't worry much about it plus, it came back. Now I am wondering if this is related. My renewal comes up November 2014...

also tried to upload screenshot here but it never gave me the upload button -- only a submit button which returned null telling me to add some content -- twice...so i posted at this one, too, same problem but the fix there did not work for my issue: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/prompted-to-upgrade-when-trying-to-add-plugins-from-wpmudev-dashboard
