Prior to running catupgrd, you will need to run utlirp. Then when you run the catupgrd, then shutdown, startup normal, utlrp.sql

Also look at the parameters in your spfile. Some will be deprecated. There is a script you can run after installing the 10g binaries to give you some guidelines. I don't know what it is off the top of my head, or you can run dbua.

Good Luck.
