It possibly will, though probably not. It will also not really upgrade
koha, as it doesn't cover moving the data.

My suggestion (and I've done this a few times) is to install Koha from
the packages (already done), take a database dump of the old one using
mysqldump, create an instance in the new install (koha-create), and then
load the data into the new instance.

This last part can be done with:

sudo koha-mysql instancename < dumpfile.sql

Then you can run:

sudo koha-upgrade-schema instancename

wait a while (if you have a lot of data and history), and you'll have an
up-to-date installation.
