That looks like a valid success response.  An optimize in Solr defaults
to one segment.  You asked it to do ten segments.  Either you already
had less than 10 segments, or it was able to find some very small
segments to merge in order to get below 10.

When you are optimizing in order to upgrade the index format, you should
leave maxSegments off or set it to 1.
