I did

masternode start

instead of

masternode start-many
Yup. This. The "masternode start" for old school hot wallet nodes still exists and gives you that error. I feel this should be removed entirely because it's dangerous and we don't want some noob doing it and losing their 1000 DASH. It's the sort of thing a noob might do as a shortcut... It doesn't serve any useful production purpose anymore, and creates a potential [really] bad thing for people who don't grasp the situation.

All "remote" or "hot/cold" wallet type nodes require start-many, start-missing, start-alias [alias in masternode.conf], etc...

Still think it needs to be renamed "start-all" instead of "start-many." Using weird language doesn't help the already confused.

it's there since v0.12.0.50 https://github.com/dashpay/dash/pull/577/commits/7fb2e38162192461dbd3040310463983d403f904
