Sharepoint 2013 Database too old

I need to figur eout how to identify if these databases are just leftover crap from a 2010 to 2013 migration or if they are being used and if they are needed how to I rectify this issue. I have tried both commands listed in the remedy section, I get no errors and I get 100% successful on both commands, yet this status doesn't change. I get the following error:


The following databases require upgrade because their versions are older than the backwards compatible range:
StateService_baff9356d1f0419dab84dfa75021397a,
Secure_Store_Service_DB_d163a3c581194f50b0f964d9df7b045e,

Remedy
 
Use Upgrade-SPContentDatabase to upgrade Content databases, or psconfig.exe to upgrade other databases. If some databases are too new, check the Patch Status page to find out if the current server are missing SharePoint software patches.

Analytics and Linkstore databases are deffinately 2013.

I find the best way to list all databases in your farm is click Perform a Backup in Central Admin.  On the selection screen you can see all databases in your farm.

I literally copied the text from the error in central administration. Is that not enough? What would you like a screen shot of?

I'm thinking I need to do some major updating. I am on build:

15.0.4420.1017

Seems super old.

SP1 was just released, so I'd go with that.

What happens when you run the SharePoint config wizard?  What was the build version of your 2010 environment?

I ran the configuration wizard in order to finish the upgrade after installing SP1 and it gets to step 9 and gets stuck forever. I let it go all of Friday and over the weekend just to be safe and it just never moves from "upgrading sharepoint products" at step 9.
old build was: 14.0.7015.1000 2010 SP2
The upgrading sharepoint products phase never finishes in the GUi, but it seems that the process did finish anyhow. After a reboot it all worked.

Because it was what happened and no other user had the input to be considered an answer.
