Problem upgrading FreeBSD 9.0 Stable to

Hello to all !
I am trying to upgrade 9.1 stable to 11. release. Now I have
 uname -a
FreeBSD inv 9.1-STABLE FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE #0: Fri Mar 22 11:18:29 EET 2013     root@payments:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MYKERNEL  amd64
When trying to run freebsd-update there is error:
freebsd-update fetch
Looking up mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from failed.
Fetching public key from failed.
Fetching public key from failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.

 freebsd-update fetch -s
Looking up mirrors... none found.
Fetching public key from failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.
How can I upgrade to 11.1, should I first change it to Release and then using these steps for example to perform upgrade?

If they don't have past versions available, which is what that looks like, you will need to do a fresh install.

(I think they only have the previous version available when the new one comes out.)

I find solution - update from sources.
Remove old src, update to 9.3Release, than update to 11.1Release.
There is guide here.
