There is no upgrade path from Edge to Edge-T - these are different products managed by different software license keys.
The Data ONTAP Edge datasheet provides a nice comparison of the two offerings:

There is no upgrade path from Edge to Edge-T. They are the equivalent of buying two different hardware platforms. Once they are installed, they set a “hardware” personality. You can’t upgrade to Edge-T as it is a different model number and associated serial number. You would need to buy an Edge-T version and migrate the data over to that virtual machine.

I know i'm digging up an old thread. But there is a "desaster recovery" procedure that you can re-install ONTAP Edge using "just" the data disks.
I believe that would allow for an upgrade.
Is there still no possibility to do a "trade-in" of an ONTAP Edge and upgrade to a Edge-T ? I mean this is after all possible with the Hardware-FAS as well (Head-Swap for instance)
Any takers here?
