I'm not sure how to explain. It's possible that sysinstall recreated
the slices and paritions, or at least the partitions were marked as
to be formatted ("Y" after the file system type in the partition

Because I've never used the "Upgrade" functionality of sysinstall,
I'm not even sure what it is supposed to do.
