When I point my browser to the update.php file I get a 500 error:

Then I try to login to the wp-admin page and get the Index page. When I click on Parent Directory I get:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: require_wp_db() in /hsphere/local/home/ttaylor1/worldclasspoetryblog.com/wordpress/wp-settings.php on line 206
I wonder if this is as a result of not disabling my plugins before I started? I didn't read the extended upgrade instructions until after I received these errors. Didn't know they existed. I tried following the 5 minute upgrade instructions and now I'm in trouble. Any help would be appreciated.
