My immediate thought was that if you can't work out how to update your
system to FreeBSD-STABLE then you probably shouldn't be doing that.
You should read the FreeBSD handbook then decide whether running
STABLE is actually what you want to do. Particularly this page:
Most FreeBSD users install FreeBSD-RELEASE then use the freebsd-update
command to either patch it with security updates or upgrade to a newer
version of RELEASE.
As far as I know you can't use freebsd-update to upgrade to/from
STABLE, only RELEASE.
