The upgrades are tested repeatedly, in particular for LTS releases.
The issue her is you can't take into account every piece of hardware in
the world, or every piece of software.
We try upgrades with a mix of data and applications, we try from
default install to default install, we try with none default
applications selected as default instead of the default ones, so we are
pretty much covered.
There are corner cases that we just can't test, for that you report a
bug and it is worked on by developers so it doesn't happen again, the
