I've been running my site for nearly 12 years now and over the years the database has had fields and tables added for loads of mods. Mods which were removed many moons ago but left their database changes behind.
If you board version is 3.0.x then using the Support ToolKit
After that, I'ld update to 3.0.14, then to 3.1.12, followed by 3.2.11, and then 3.3.3
The 3.0.14 to 3.1.12 will take some time, and 3.1.12 to 3.2.11 also.
I usually test those in-betweens and take a database backup to avoid having to redo those should something go wrong later.
Actually, EA117 in another post
reminded me of the existence of CLI.
After cleaning your database (STK) (+ take a db-backup), you could try the CLI approach which could avoid the need for upgrading in steps
