The problem with selfupdate is it (a) won't add any new dependencies
because e.g. some library formerly provided by Apple went away or became
incompatible (b) likely won't even start up if that's the case, but crash
immediately with a missing library error. You need to start fresh with a
base that knows about the peculiarities of the new OS release, which means
updating via the installer.
