When you upgrade from google apps free to google apps for work, you will have to upgrade with all users, not only with the few ones, for e.g if your google apps standard edition has 50 free users, once you created 50 users, if you need 5 more users, then you will need to upgrade to paid edition with all 55 users, not just 5.
