Might want to try it again from the beginning.
I just did the upgrade AGAIN, from scratch, and am experiencing the exact same behavior as described above (or should I say "lack" of behavior). My version number is still 4.8.2 and none of the additional menus in 4.8.5 are showing up in my admin panel. It looks completely unchanged.
