freebsd-update code (at last check) supported updating -RELEASE and
-SECURITY systems, but not -STABLE.

Because it's trying to fetch a -STABLE uname, and it doesn't have an
idea of the latest time it was built (looks like a snapshot, to us
humans), it is unable to move past the keys.

You'll need to run -RELEASE[-p#] to update or update from source.

the freebsd-update program is a shell script.  read it, it's enlightening.
