While he certainly did some unsafe things, I do not believe upgrading should be considered potentionally unsafe. At least at the level of a personal system.
Sure on a production server, some minor differences in behavior might be catastrophic, but on a personal system, upgrading should leave me with a running system 100% of the time. I don't think this is unachievable, and I think it has generallly been achieved on most Linux distributions.
