Running sysinst and selecting "upgrade" produces text about writing
a new disk label and other random scriblings that only apply to a
completely new install. These haven't happened in fact (there's
no oportunity to do anything to a disk-label during an upgrade).
Run sysinst and selct the upgrade option. Read the messages that
are being generated.
