Comment (by bonefish):

 The system upgrade is not really supported yet. It probably needs special
 handling in the package kit solver and the package manager (libsolv, our
 dependency solving backend, does have a distribution upgrade mode which we
 don't use yet). Furthermore package daemon and packagefs need some support
 for this as well, so we don't actually replace the system while it is
 still running.
