Ok,  so I installed 9.1 afresh in Virtualbox, modified sysupdate.conf. 
Prompt to update came from the update notifier right away.

Performed the update/upgrade, which didn't take very long. Rebooted, 
and all seems to be working. I was expecting to see a different output 
from "uname -a" before and after, or is that not expected.

question on apps:

Currently, I installed Firefox 18, which is the latest available via 
AppCafe. Given that the latest version is Firefox 19, when should that 
be expected in AppCafe?

Same applies to other apps, like Virtualbox.
