You have to upgrade 2 buildings: the tracking station (to level 2) and the mission control (to level 2).
Just one by itself is not enough. If you upgrade mission control without the tracking station, you’ll see a message telling you that “flight planning” is not available until the tracking station is upgraded.
As of 0.90 maneuver nodes are unlocked by buying the first upgrade to the Tracking Station.
Mission Control (the place where you get contracts) the upgrade is called “flight planning”. The tracking station lets you unlock conics which I think are simply the predictions of intercepting celestial bodies, etc. I unlocked the tracking station first, which gave me the blue/purple lines etc. but no ability to place maneuver nodes.
You have to unlock both the second level Tracking Station and the second level Mission Control. You are looking for the “Flight Planning” upgrade.
Note that it is the second level of each building, not the third. Neither building needs the third level upgrade before maneuver nodes are available.
