I did this multiple times:

#freebsd-update install
Installing updates...
Completing this upgrade requires removing old shared object files.
Please rebuild all installed 3rd party software (e.g., programs
installed from the ports tree) and then run "/usr/sbin/freebsd-update insta=
ll"
again to finish installing updates.

# reboot

still at 8.3-RELEASE

Since I am running the xenhvm kernel on an Amazon AWS server, I must
update the kernel manually right?
