No, this will effect upgrades if the computer is currently set to
Google. This is not because of anything special for this particular
change. This is because Ubuntu always changes to new defaults for users
who are on old defaults.

However, if you are set to wikipedia as your search provider (for
example) then that means that you are no longer using the default, so
Ubuntu won't change you to the new default.


Cheers, Rick
