However, unlike Tigersharke, a reboot did not begin anything and the
system remained at BETA2.

All the update files are stored in /usr/local/tmp, so if /usr has space,
its not that issue. Most likely its a failed fetch causing the problem.
I've seen a bug in "fetch" on 9, where if you run it too quickly it
overflows a buffer somewhere and fails to run for 5-10 seconds. I'll see
if we can detect / clarify the error message further though.
