No issues with the update if you are running the original repositories.
Problem is that most of them contain outdated apps that are no longer supported by developers.
This way you can either compile the packages by yourself or use the prebuild binaries from their repositories, which do tend to brake at each system upgrade.
Other distributions have problems with this because they either include alpha quality packages in their stable repositories (Fedora ..) or they lack the required dependencies.
