If you've completely removed (dropped) the database, the above won't do
anything.  If you installed from source, then run:

mysql -u mythtv -p < /path/to/mythtv/src/mythtv/database/mc.sql

and enter the mythtv database password. This will create the shell of the
database again. Then I believe you will need to run mythtv-setup again, and
then run mythbackend from the command-line, and not as a daemon, then you
should be able to 'confirm' the upgrade. Those might not be the exact
steps, but it should get you moving in the right direction.
