After Manual Upgrade from FreeNAS 9.10 to 11.1, system still 9.10

I could not check for updates in 9.10 so I tried to manually install by downloading FreeNAS-11.1-RELEASE-manual-update.tar
and manually installing it from the Web GUI. It said it had done the upgrade, and verifying the installation, it says “OK” but the system is still 9.10 even after rebooting. What can I do to fix this?

You can expect problems like this when you don’t update software for eight years. The simplest solution would be to just install 11.1 to a fresh boot device, and then upload your config file to it. Then repeat with 12.0, and then with 13.0.
