AFAICS, what you did was correct.

We are just rolling out the production implementation of ./b2 headers.
Previously it had required patching some files. I'd say wait 24 hours, and
then try again just in case the conversion hadn't caught up yet with merges
to branches/release.

If it is still failing, please post a separate message. Normally I would be
testing this, but I won't be able to test until the end of the week.
