were all of your daemons down after restarting the upgraded cluster?
Is it possible that you forgot any daemon to shutdown before upgradeing 
which is still running.
Could you try the stop all daemons and restart the cluster again?
The sge_schedd can not connect to qmaster. Could you check the qmaster 
messages file?
You will find it in qmaster_spool dir.
