    delete ALL old wordpress files, not your changes content (wp_config.php, wp-content) and do NOT replace the old files.

    1) Delete old wordpress files COMPLETLY.
    2) Upload the new wordpress files.

    Again: Do not copy WP 2.1 over an old Version.

    I also tried to overwrite the files (well, the upgrade page does *say* you can - at least, it does at the moment; not sure if they'll update it later).
    Ran into the same problems, so deleted the lot (I'd got a backup, so figured it was quicker to remove all the files, then add things like wp-config.

    After all that, I still couldn't update it, due to wrong versions of MySQL.
    Oh well, at least I've managed to get the (old) version up & running again.
