The use of /stand/sysinstall to do a live upgrade has always been
discouraged, though it's not outright disallowed since I believe in
every man's right to blow his feet off if he really wants to.
Nonetheless, for the expected installation experience one is
encouraged to boot the desired OS release's installation media and
select an upgrade instead of a new install.
