Need USB eLicenser after upgrading??

So, I bought an update… “Cubase Artist 8.5 Upgrade from Cubase Elements or Studio”, but when I try to launch it it says I need a USB eLicenser dongle, which I don’t have because I downloaded the update and I did not get one with the original Cubase AI software.

How can I run the software I just bought??
The closest Guitar Center (20 miles away) says they are out of stock.

This is kind of disappointing. =(
