*No updates needed to update system to 11.0-RELEASE-p8.*

*WARNING: FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p8 is approaching its End-of-Life date.*
It is strongly recommended that you upgrade to a newer
release within the next 2 months.

What's this warning telling me? In one line no update is needed but in 
the next the current release is almost outdated?
