If you did, literally, what you describe, then your problem is that you
upgraded improperly.

"make buildworld" builds world, but doesn't install it.  "make kernel" makes
and installs the kernel.  If you did the steps you describe, then you have
a kernel and a world with mistmatched versions.

If that's the case, get booted into the system and re-run the upgrade process.
Be sure to do all the steps this time, as described in 21.4.1:
