Question Question about freebsd-upgrade


Earlier today I tried to enter the classic upgrade command "freebsd-upgrade" and I got an unexpected response. Well, it was unexpected to me. It may be standard procedure for all I know. But the specifics:

:] freebsd-update fetch

    src component not installed, skipped
    freebsd-update: Cannot upgrade from a version that is not a release
    (including alpha, beta and release candidates)
    using freebsd-update. Instead, FreeBSD can be directly
    upgraded by source or upgraded to a RELEASE/RELENG version
    prior to running freebsd-update.
    Currently running: 13.0-STABLE
It sounds like my version of FreeBSD, a "stable" version, isn't liked by this command. Is that true? And if so, what should I plan on doing?

I thought "stable" versions were considered Okay. What the heck? Anyway, I don't know if anything is my system needs upgrading or updating today and now, but sooner or later it will. So I thought I would inquire.

Thanks in advance,
