So why do you want the system to swap _less_? You need to find some free
memory for the additional processes to run in, and you have lots of
inactive pages, so I think you want to swap out _more_ pages.

I'd suggest to temporarily add a swapfile before you update your system.
This can even help in bringing your memory use to the state before if you
do it like this
- swapon additional swapfile
- update your database software
- swapoff swap partition
- swapon swap partition
- swapoff additional swapfile
