That means finalizeUpgrade has not been run before or failed for some reason.

Finalizing on the data-nodes is very lazy.
During registrations and block reports the name-node will inform data-nodes
whether it has the previous state or not. If not the data-nodes will remove
their previous states.
On the running cluster a complete previous state removal can take up to one hour.

If you need to accelerate it - restart the cluster.
But it should be done by now. There's been 3 hours since you wrote this.
