It /may/ be possible, but we aren't doing any tests to be certain. In
the future the plan is to allow upgrading with yup from one version to
the next, but we're not quite at that state yet. My recommendation
would be to install fresh so that you don't have any old packages laying
For example, yup in it's current state can't detect that we've switched
to using xinetd instead of inetd. Problems like this were fixed in
Debian by adding the dist-upgrade command which yup will also probably
have added to it sometime.

We've contacted the systems administrators at sourceforge and it should
be taken care of soon.
