Light fixture swap running into problems : HomeImprovement

I’m changing a light in a room that has electrical add on on outside of wall. It is a semi flush mount. The electrical box for the light fixture has two bolts coming out which prevent me from being able to add the metal plate that comes with the new light flush against the box because they don’t line up with holes so they do not fit in that way. I’ve tried moving out around and it seems no way can I get the plate to sit flush against the can. I can’t figure out what to do so I can install this plate in order to install the light. I’ve watched YouTube videos but they don’t seem to have the same problem. Photos in the link. Please help!!! Spent a very frustrated night
