The number of tables in Magento can vary quite a lot so you shouldn\’t necessarily use the number of tables as a test to see if the upgrade has happened successfully.

As a test, try creating an empty database with the same DB user and edit your app/etc/local.xml file and point it at this new empty DB

Then hit the front page, Magento will actually create a new empty database for you.
