"Upgraded" from 3.0.2 to 3.0.1? – ZaMoose Dec 13 '10 at 18:02
Can I asked how you solved it? I have the same problem and I'm on Media Temple too. – sheenn Dec 20 '10 at 7:56

I had some problems upgrading to 3.0.3 on a multi-site installation. I had used the automatic upgrade and it failed, but luckily, downloading and extracting the new files from WP.org and uploading them directly fixed it. I would try that first. If that doesn't work, try re-uploading your backup files. You did make a backup, right?
