This answer was upvoted, accepted, bountied... and upon arriving at the destination, turned out to be factually incorrect.

I have undone the acceptance and added my own answer. However, I cannot undo my upvote and I think it also doesn't deserve the bounty.

What should be done in this situation?

Well bounties can't be undone, so that one will sadly be a lost cause. (Unless there's a way I'm unaware of).

(cough dirty weasel-hack) If you edit the answer, make a cosmetic change and hit save, you'll then (for a short while) be able to change your upvote to either remove it or downvote instead.
