Update from 4.X to 5.X is not impossible. And the basic method does not differ from the update of any 4.X to 4.Y system (X<Y) or 5.X to 5.Y system (X<Y). But you need to study /usr/src/UPDATING VERY VERY HARD. Also the update is not recommended as the 5.X family uses a new file system called UFS2. UFS2 is much better in terms of performance, fault tolerance and security than UFS. However 5.X family IS backward compatible with UFS. As far as I know there is no method to convert a UFS file system to UFS2 or vice versa.
