I've applied SP1, run psconfigure (which passed 4/4) and applied the june update.
I get this message in health analyser so using powershell I run upgrade-spcontentdatabase on each of the DBs listed below and each one comes back as not needing upgrading. Who to believe?!

The following databases have versions that are older than the current SharePoint software, but are within the backwards compatible range:
User Profile Service Application_SocialDB_632f79a7b5d74746b2e20d89069b2d72,
WebAnalyticsServiceApplication_StagingDB_4f9c974c-ac3b-4092-80df-6e48c37d7517,
Search_Service_Application_CrawlStoreDB_27971e2eb0524dc18536f35f299fc2fc,

Have you tried these (as appropriate)

psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force

Or if required:

psconfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -passphrase <insert-passphrase-here> -force

That is what I did on my server

Also, did you apply all the correct updates?

You are actually supposed to apply the SharePoint Foundation updates, then the SharePoint server updates.

I had trouble until I applied all the appropriate updates in the proper order.

OK, this is the article I used.  I applied these updates to three SharePoint 2010 farms.  Dev, QA and Production.  Unless I followed the order in this article I had the same issue as you.

thanks, I'll go through it when back in the office tomorrow. I really hope the admin side of SP get's less complex and more trustworthy in future updates!
The amount of time I have spent recently on fixing stuff or chasing cascading errors is huge

Agreed.  Generally it has been better but this last update definitely had a few issues.  The one thing I can say is that even with some of these errors, at least the farm is still running and usable.  With SharePoint 2007 if there were any errors in the update process the farm was down.

I won't be putting SP1 and/or updates any where near the production server until I nail this - I don't have enough SP admin skills yet to resucitate it should it die.
