Post MOSS 2007 to SP2010 In-Place Upgrade Questions

Greetings!

I recently did an upgrade on my MOSS 2007 server farm to SharePoint 2010, and have a question.  I don't claim to understand everything that is going on within SP2010, because it looks very different than what I'm used to (MOSS 2007), but here goes:

I ran the required software checker tool to make sure that I had all of the required software, patches, hotfixes, and service packs for my server farm.  The first thing that failed was that my SQL server was out of date, so I applied the service pack and the farm installation went fine.

So I installed SP2010 on my Application server and Web Front End server.  I set the farm password on the Application server, and chose to do an in-place upgrade and keep the sites the way they were (not to visually change them to SP2010 styles, I guess).  

After the installation was complete, I went to the Upgrade Status page in Central Administration, waited, and it said that the upgrade had failed.  I checked the log, and there were a lot of errors stating that the image library for the site was not found...which is odd, because there IS an images library in the sites in question.

I haven't found anything on google about this...I'm not sure if it's just me, or (more likely) I'm searching with the wrong terms...

The thing that gets me, is that I added my Web Front End server to the farm, and it listed that server as "Upgrade Successful".  

So under "manager servers in farm", SQL server and WFE server are green (finished), but the Application server says "Upgrade Needed".

Are there any post-installation procedures to accomplish other than starting services, etc, that would have this continue to say "Upgrade Needed" on the server that is running Central Administration in the farm?

Thanks, I appreciate any help!

What was the actual error that you received? What parts on the application server failed? Many of the components of the application server have changed drastically (such as there is no Shared Service Provider anymore)

Post some more info of the actual error received and where in the upgrade process it failed. Logs with the errors would be great.

We've done a reinstall, and while I don't have as many errors as before, I still have a few.  here they are:

I figured out what the error was.  The upgrade was failing due to a bad site collection (it had features turned on that weren't native to the template that it was using).
