The first command, RSTUSRPRF has the parameter ALWBJDIF(*ALL) but
why is this needed with previous-to-current release? I am a little
unclear of what exactly is being overwritten but there really aren't
any user profiles aside from QSECOFR so why would this need to be

The second command, is RSTCFG OBJ(*ALL) DEV(media-device-name)
makes sense, as you're probably be going to be installing on a
different system.

Third, RSTLIB SAVLIB(*NONSYS) DEV(media-device-name) OPTION(*NEW)
OMITOBJ(QOFC). I would have thought the FRCOBJCVN would be set to at
least SYSVAL? The SYSVAL that it looks at is already set to 0 - do
not convert in the previous to current release instructions.

Forth, the RSTDLO is essentially the same aside from the addition of

What am I missing?

When doing a same-release install to move to a new system, the operating assumption is that the GO SAVE option-21 was used also to install the target system; i.e. part of the documented steps.

However in a prv-to-cur install, the installation inherently had to have been done using media that is not representative of the currently installed system level; an install to the current release can not have been accomplished using previous-release media. Perhaps excepting the Restore DLO action [of which I recall too little], all of the other requests may encounter differences that are best avoided by use of Allow Object Differences (ALWOBJDIF), to enable the restore to complete. That does not imply however, that such an install can not use successfully, the GO RESTORE option-21; given such a restore is done to a system installed with just the LIC and OS, there are likely to be few customizations from the previous-release media that would inhibit a restore using ALWOBJDIF(*NONE) on the current-release installation. And IIRC, the GO RESTORE options [allow choosing the option to] prompt the individual requests; the F9=Show All Parameters in the prompted command would allow modifying the ALWOBJDIF parameter specification?
