    To update or upgrade your Parallels Plesk Panel software using the command line of the Parallels Products Installer utility:

    1. Run the parallels_installer binary file, which is located in the directory /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/ on RPM-based Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS systems, and /opt/psa/admin/bin/ on deb-based Linux systems.
    2. Read the installation instructions displayed on the screen, and then type 'n' and press ENTER to continue. The Parallels Products Installer will detect your existing installation of Parallels Plesk Panel and ask if you want to upgrade it.
    3. To confirm upgrade, type 'y' and press ENTER.

    6. Select the product version that you wish to upgrade to: type the number corresponding to the product version you need and press ENTER, then type 'n' and press ENTER to continue.
    7. On a FreeBSD system, specify FreeBSD Ports Collection tarball URL, distfiles master site URL and Ports updating source, if required. It is recommended that you use the default settings. Press ENTER to continue.

    I suggest to upgrade to latest PLESK by version to version.
    This mean if you have 8.6.0 first upgrade to 9.0.0 then to 9.1.0 (as I remember) and then only to 9.2.0, this is more secure as I experienced.
