It should be possible. Note that the FO unit cannot operate independently and thus needs to be connected to its mate. You should be able to follow this procedure.

What issue were you seing or procedure were you following when you were unable to upgrade?

I believe you need the units connected when you do an upgrade. the FO-licensed unit cannot be accessed via its network interfaces in stand alone mode.

Please see the detailed procedure here.
