 Requests library:

 - Requests pre-2.0.0:
    * the "cURL" class was called `Requests_Transport_cURL` and was in a
 file named `wp-includes/Requests/Transport/cURL.php`.
    * [https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-develop/blob/5.8/src/wp-
 includes/Requests/Transport/cURL.php#L443 Line 443] in `cURL.php` file
 throws a new `Requests_Exception()` error
 - Requests 2.0.0:
    * the "cURL" class was renamed to `WpOrg\Requests\Transport`Curl` and
 its file renamed to `wp-includes/Requests/Transport/Curl.php`.
    * `Requests_Exception` class was removed in this version
    * [https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-develop/blob/trunk/src/wp-
 includes/Requests/Transport/Curl.php#L492 The cURL error] was changed to
 throw a new `Exception`

 [52244] #54504 updated the Requests library to 2.0.0.

 Look at the fatal error:
 Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'Requests_Exception' not found in
 C:\Users\User\Local Sites\first-localhost\app\public\wp-
 includes\Requests\Transport\cURL.php on line 443
 It's indicating the error happened in `cURL.php` file on line 443. That
 file was renamed in Requests 2.0.0 and line 443 is from the older version,
 not the new version (i.e. in 5.9.0 Beta 1).

 Look at the 2nd error:
 Error: Class 'Requests_Exception' not found in C:\Users\User\Local Sites
 \first-localhost\app\public\wp-includes\Requests\Transport\cURL.php on
 line 443
 That class was removed in newer version (i.e. in 5.9.0 Beta 1).

 At `Upgrading database...` the old files should have been removed and new
 files installed. Did this happen?

 @apeksha10 if you're able to, can you check if the cURL file is named
 `cURL.php` or `Curl.php`? Look here: `C:\Users\User\Local Sites\first-
 localhost\app\public\wp-includes\Requests\Transport\Curl.php`. Is it named
 `cURL.php` or `Curl.php`?
