Welcome to WPML Support.
I'll do my best to help you solve this issue.

I Checked your activation license and it's registered for the domain: "hidden link", but your WordPress' Site URL is : "hidden link"

They might seem the same, but that "www." part is what's causing your problem. Before registering a license, make sure to always use the WordPress site URL (found in Settings > General > Site Address (URL) ), otherwise you'll encounter this kinds of issues while licensing it for the first time or while upgrading to newer versions.

To solve this issue, just remove the license and add instead this domain under your license activation panel "hidden link" and try adding that license into your WPML installation.

Let me know how it goes and do not hesitate to ask if you have any doubt on what i previously explained, i'll be happy to help you.
