Did you reboot with 'system reboot' or just remove power and power back up?

I upgraded a pair of RB800s with the PPC combined pacage without problems.

You only need to upload routeros-powerpc-4.5.npk and then reboot.

RouterOS doesn't support folders

upload all NPK files to the root level of the file tree.
