Upgrade from 19.04 to 19.10 possible?

Is is possible to upgrade from Ghost bsd 19.04 to 19.10?

I tried pkg update -f, pkg upgrade, which did not work.

It is not possible since we change the update system and move from 13 CURRENT to 12 STABLE.

Thanks. Should I just for GhostBSD to go from 13-CURRENT to 13-STABLE? And then upgrade to current version whatever that is?

EricBSD clarified that an update with the package manager was not possible due to the GhotBSD migration from FreeBSD 13 current (for Ghost 19.04) to FreeBSD 12 stable (for Ghost 19.10).
So, Ghost 19.04 not being maintained anymore you have to redo a clean installation of your distribution from a version 19.10 iso because the ABI of the two versions is not compatible.
Ghost will switch to FreeBSD 13 stable when FreeBSD 13 stable will be released :-) and you will can do a simple update with pkg without having to reinstall everything.
