My /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf file hadn't been modified since it was installed.
It specified devices by /dev/sda1, /dev/sda3 etc, so I figured it was just complaining that I wasn't using the UUID system of identifying drives.

Therefore, I backed up the system remotely, rebooted it, and it came back up fine.
