Upgrade using the graphical update manager, +not+ apt-get. It is not
equivalent anymore, sadly.

Also there are some packages it is worth removing before an upgrade (and
reinstalling after) such as binary drivers from nvidia or ati, or any
third party stuff you have installed.

Usually the worst thing that can happen is that after upgrade your
graphical system doesn't start, in which case you must know the magical
words to reconfigure it:

sudo dpgk reconfigure xserver-xorg
