Upgrade problem from 2.0.16 to 2.0.18.1: 404 error

I'm struggling to upgrade my 2.0.16 Vanilla to the current 2.0.18.1. I've followed instructions at http://vanillaforums.org/page/Installation-Upgrade, and gone through as many forum posts as I can looking for clues.

I did all the backups as suggested.

I downloaded the .zip from here, on a Windows machine unzipped it, and renamed the top level "vanilla" folder to "forum" (which is where the forum files live on my web server), and then rezipped it up. I uploaded the .zip file to my web server, and I unzip it there, overwriting the old files in the forum folder.

I deleted the .ini files in the cache folder.

When I navigate to www.yourforum.com/utility/update , which in my case is http://www.defectiverecords.com/forum/utility/update , I get a 404 File or Directory not found error.

Can someone help? Thanks....
