FreeBSD 11.3 freebsd-update makes ECS instance unbootable

i am on my trial to Alibaba Cloud ECS. I am trying the FreeBSD 11.3 amd64 public image. after the instance is created, i do `freebsd-update fetch install` and do a reboot. after reboot, my instance cannot boot properly. looks like the OS cannot find the boot disk. I think the virtio_blk(4) driver is already loaded but the OS cannot find the boot disk.

Look like your image boot up procedure is crashed.
you can use the alibable console and connect using VNC then restart your machine, during your boot up you may seeing UEFI option you need to answer, or boot it to safe mode then uninstall your stuff.
See below for details using the VNC in the console.
