What did you upgrade from? From personal experience I always do a fresh

Are you actually experiencing crashes or is it that you get lots of
there is a problem report it dialogs?

The reason I ask is there is a new system in place that detects every
error rather than crash and reports them to error.ubuntu.com so the
devs can clean up their code and get their apps out of the top 10 and
in the process clean up the code for everyones use.

So it might be that the devs knew the code threw up an error but muted
the output and the user never knew where as this new system exposes
all of that, so you will initially see a lot of these error boxes, the
plan being that they will slowly but surely ease off as the devs fix
the code.

I hope that answers the question.
