No, there isn't. Especially from 10.2 to 11.4...that's way to big a jump.
If you want the best stability and the easiest way to go from 10.2 to 11.4, then I'd suggest downloading the .ISO image, burning it to DVD, and doing a fresh install. Take advantage of ext4, too, when you format your drive.
It goes without saying that you need to make SURE you back your data up first.
