    Sounds like you hit the same issue as I did.  If you did update to SP SP1, you will have to upgrade your databases to SP1 as well or else that error appears using Sharepoint Configuration Wizard or Central Admin.

    To check if your database needs to be updated, open Central Administration and navigate to “Upgrade and Migration” -> “Review database status”.

    All of your databases should show a status of “No action required”.

    Let us know,

    Run the config wizard.  Did you recently install an update?
