Glad it went smoothly.  Sorry for the delayed response; I've been
camping/hiking/rafting/doing other outdoorsy stuff off the grid since

Typically not.  Sometimes the back-end configuration handling for a
certain service is overhauled between releases, which necessitates
reconfiguring after upgrading.  e.g., in Barrier Breaker, major
changes were made to how IPv6 is configured, so you'd have had to have
redone that one.  And you always have to reinstall any packages that
you'd manually installed; the upgrade doesn't do that for you.  But
all in all, it usually takes about 5-10 minutes to upgrade.
