Hi @isabellechristophe,
How many hard warnings does your license master shows?
If there are more than 5 warnings then you will have to contact person who sold splunk license and if your splunk version is higher than 6.5.0 you can also ask for no-enforcement key with it's help your splunk service won't stop even if you have crossed 5 hard warnings for your license.

Because you got more then 5 warnings your Splunk instance got locked.
Please contact the person who sold you the new licence and ask for a Reset Key

try to go to settings > Licensing
At the end you should see "Warning count"
What's the number there?

Are you running a distributed environment, or a single Splunk server?
If distributed, on which server did you update the licence?

@isabellechristophe, there are couple of ways to load license in Splunk:
1) Browse to License File and upload.
2) Copy paste XML directly from new License.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Installalicense
Which one are you trying? Are you aware of any Splunk Error/s while uploading new license?

You can also reach out to Splunk Sale point of contact for you or Splunk Support with any help required with License update issue.

have you had more then 5 days over the limit before you installed the new licence? so you had more then 5 violations?
Then you need a reset key.
