Yes.  It will be replaced by 'pkg upgrade' -- as far as I know, that's
the plan for 11.0-RELEASE.

Hm... I never had any troubles with freebsd-update, it always "just
worked" for me. OTOH, I remember having several issues with pkg, requiring
to fix databases manually and so on.

I had many issues with freebsd-update in the past so the last year I converted all machines back to "installkernel & installworld" from NFS mounted build server. It is faster and predictable than freebsd-update (in my case). I hope that pkg upgrade will be good replacement one day. But I don't think it is good enough right now.
