You can probably do that. However, you may end up with some issues to
solve. Generally, it is better not to upgrade, from one major version
(in this case 3.x) to a newer one (4.x).  Better to backup, do a clean
install, and then restore. Is there some reason  you do not want to
install 5.2 on that box?
