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
