These columns were added in SP2. Check your installer logs and see if SP2 setup ran without error.

I'm having trouble finding the log files.  Do you know where they are?

Ok I finally got the damn thing installed.  Still not sure what was wrong though.  Rebooted the server and it installed fine.

this problem occurs if some of the stored procedures while installing SP2 has not been applied successfully. So we will manually run one of the stored procedure. And hopefully this issue will get resolved.

1)       First go to the folder Install . The default location is this = C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Install  .
2)      Then in this folder find this sysdbupg.sql .
3)      Please open this script with a nodepad.
4)      Then copy the whole script and then paste it in the Query window of the Management studio.
5)      Then execute this script.
6)      Once this script has been successfully executed, The issue should be resolved.

How safe is it to re-run the "sysdbupg.sql" script on a production SQL Server that has the same error?
I cannot create a maintenance plan either, get the same error. My verion is SP2, I think the person that used to manage the DB before failed to update it correctly.
Any thoughts?
