Do you mean you were deadlifting like a SLDL, or are you literally trying to deadlift with an upright back? If so, this isn't a maximal leverage position, and is not correct deadlift form. It will generally force you into a position where your hips are too low while pulling, and this can be hard to achieve unless your feet are too far away from the bar to start with. This will cause further issues when you begin to pull.
What I will do tomorrow is get my brother to use his IPhone to record me deadlifting and then post the video so you guys can have a look at it and give me some feedback .I donít think my form is too bad

thanks for all the help, much appreciated
