You can't use freebsd-update with 10-STABLE.  It only works with
*release* versions.

If you want to switch to 10.1-RELEASE you should be able to d something

   # freebsd-update -r 10.1-RELEASE upgrade
   # freebsd-update install
   (... and then follow the instructions freebsd-update gives you.  You
    will end up running 'freebsd-update install' three times.)

Otherwise, if you stick with 10-STABLE then you will need to compile
your own world to update.
