Default upgrading via command-line
i have server edition installed via 20120621 snapshot, and would like to upgrade to the latest beta. and then to -release, once available. none of the gui tools are installed of course, and the upgrade notes that i've found do not cover this situation.

how would i go about performing the upgrade?

Default SOLVED: upgrading via command-line
just in case anyone else is in this situation ...

pc-updatemanager is a command-line utility that was included with subsequent snapshots. i downloaded/built that from source, and it was able to take me to 9.1-beta1.

rc1 is the latest. You can run "pc-updatemanager" command from the CLI,
and it'll give you a list of usage options.

i did that many times...
i followed the update method, downloaded all the packages (base + gnome desktop and i had to interrupt that download in between when kde was being downloaded) i tried to restart the procedure but now i am getting system is up to date and i didnt get the console pop up asking for upgrading the downloaded packages.

now ive downloaded the usb full image for RC1. is there a way i can use that to upgrade without affecting my downloaded softwares and customizations ? OR do i have to go for a clean install ?

You can install fresh, but can you post the output of this?

% pbreg get /PC-BSD/Version
% uname -a

Maybe the version number is wrong.

Oh, you are on 9.0 still, so you will need to follow the instructions at
the end of the 9.1-RC1 release announcement, or wait for 9.1 to be
officially released:

* If you wish to update from 9.0 to RC1 you may do so by editing the "/usr/local/share/pcbsd/pc-updatemanager/conf/sysupdate.conf" file and changing the PATCHSET: variable to "pcbsdtest".

After changing this variable, you may run the updater utility, to download a new update manager. Once this update manager is installed, the online update to the RC1 version will appear.

Default still need to use freebsd-update as well?
freebsd-update is still needed to update kernel and base OS?

So proper sequence is this:

pc-updatemanager check
pc-updatemanager install <something>

freebsd-update check
freebsd-update install
