That shouldnt happen -ever- with WordPress :) (Well.. not for
upgrades, uploads are a different story)

Sounds like for some reason, Your admin user doesnt have a few of the
capabilities introduced with recent upgrades, I'd suggest creating a
new admin, and attempting the upgrade from there, it'll tell you if
its just your admin user which is suffering or not.... Mind you.. i
dont think this would help either now i think about it.
The core upgrader is based off the Plugin upgrade capability, If your
user does not have permission to upgrade plugins, then it wont be able
to upgrade core WP.
Try adding populate_roles_260; to your themes functions.php file, just
to make sure your admin role has it..
