    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
