I don't know your specific problem solution, but I wanted to answer a couple
of related questions:

Generally, it's always best to upgrade to the newest version. As an example,
the Plone 3.1 release has migration/upgrade fixes that are not present in
the 3.0.x releases — which can make it easier to upgrade.

There are some exceptions when you are on very old releases (I believe
migrating from Plone 1.0 or 2.0 to 3.1 directly is not supported), but the
general rule is to use the latest release whenever possible. :)

Yes, that's usually the best approach — then move over the latest versions
of any add-on products you use. All this will be made much easier and
automated in the near future, when eggs and buildouts are more common.
