Upgrade issues are mostly because of people

A upgrading when the development distro is still unstable.
B users not having ubuntu-base/ubuntu-desktop packages installed
C users using backports or extras

A _should_ be mostly solved.
Especially B is something that is easily avoidable.
using backports or extras is supported, but this is still not tested as 
much as doing a straight upgrade, so take caution.
