As mentioned in the blue bar, the search index is rebuilding. You can check this status by going to ACP -> System -> Dashboard -> Background Processes.

Thank you so much!

Rebuilding the search index on my site took about 12 hours with the default database search.  It was much faster (just under 2 hours) with Elasticsearch.  

The amount of time it takes depends on the available system resources and how busy your site is.  Remember...  this is a pretty database intense process and it's competing with your normal site users for resources.  IPB tries to limit what it does at one time so as not to completely overwhelm your server and have your site down while it's being worked on.

How do you start search index?

That means you have not even STARTED the search index rebuild yet.  It's rebuilding the posts themselves.  (It's rewriting old BB code into new format, etc.)

I thought rewriting posts into new format was done by upgrade scripts.

Background tasks run in order they are added. After an upgrade posts are rebuilt then the search index. On the Dashboard in the ACP you can see the current order of tasks.

No. Upgrade procedures are done. Posts are not rebuilt though as it would mean the upgrade process for some sites would take days. It is handled post upgrade by the background tasks.
