I've been trying every few days to update from 7.1-P5 to 7.2 using
freebsd-update.  It always goes as follows:

statler # freebsd-update upgrade -r 7.2-RELEASE
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 6 mirrors found.
Fetching metadata signature for 7.1-RELEASE from update5.FreeBSD.org... done.
Fetching metadata index... done.
Fetching 1 metadata patches. done.
Applying metadata patches... done.
Fetching 1 metadata files... done.
Inspecting system... done.

WARNING: This system is running a "statler" kernel, which is not a
kernel configuration distributed as part of FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE.
This kernel will not be updated: you MUST update the kernel manually
before running "/usr/sbin/freebsd-update install".

The following components of FreeBSD seem to be installed:
src/base src/sys world/base world/dict world/games world/info
world/manpages

The following components of FreeBSD do not seem to be installed:
kernel/generic src/bin src/cddl src/contrib src/crypto src/etc src/games
src/gnu src/include src/krb5 src/lib src/libexec src/release src/rescue
src/sbin src/secure src/share src/tools src/ubin src/usbin
world/catpages world/doc world/proflibs

Does this look reasonable (y/n)? y

Any thoughts?  Thanks for your time!
