I had a theory that someone had died, or they thought someone had died. Most likely Kirk, or maybe Pike. Then Uhura is upset and hugs Spock, who doesn't know how to feel, being conflicted by emotion and all. Am I way off on this one?

I don't think Vulcan actually gets destroyed in the film, even though it is in an alternate universe. I think the planet getting destroyed is some insignifigant planet, one in which Nero is testing his device out on. That's the formula for these types of movies anyway. First they show you that the weapon works on an innocent planet, then when they use it on your planet they get foiled.

Spocks behaviour is entirely normal for his character which has not yet achieved a balance with his human side. "Tell mom I feel fine."

I agree with omegaman I dont thank that at this point his behavior is divergent. If this was the TOS timeline I would say that his development was somewhere between The Cage and BOT. Maybe part of the story in this film is to show his transformation from confliction about his two sides to acceptance of his vulcan hertage and supression of his human side.

I cant help but recall the smile Spock emotes to Pike upon grabbing the humming leaves on Talos lV. Or his Jim-gasm at the end of Amok time.

That was a good one. I think that this was done before they had nailed down what his vulcan character was going to be about--with supressing the emotions and all that stuff that defines his character. The Talos IV episode, that is.

Agreed but it was shown in The Menagerie. The whole motivation behind Spocks involvement in that ep was emotional. He risks his own life so Pike can live the rest of his life in some form of happiness.

That was a great episode. A good utilization of the original pilot. Spock, afterall, isn't a machine. He even expressed a certain amount of envy of Data when they met for his inability to feel emotions. But, we've all been there, haven't we. Sometimes everyone has wished they didn't feel what they feel.

Whatever the reason, I suspect it had to be significant enough for Uhura to actually express herself towards Spock in a physical way (i.e. the hug).

Unless Uhura and Spock have a more casual friendship/relationship than the one we are used to whereby a hug wouldn't be out of the norm.

He seems genuinely unused to that type of contact though. So I am inclined to believe something has happened to cause Uhura to give him a comforting gesture.
