No, you can not use the hotcopy for an upgrade. Hotcopy is, well a hot copy.
It is a method to back up your repository without bringing down the server
(i.e, with no downtime). It creates an exact copy of the repository that you
can use to backup.

The hotcopy, as mentioned, is an exact copy. So one thing you could try is
to test an upgrade on the hotcopy using 'svnadmin upgrade' and see if it
works for you (it should). If that works, then you don't need any dump /
load.
