Slackware ARM - SARPi3. Is it safe to perform system upgrade?

I have just installed SARPi3 and found that there are some package upgrades available. Is it safe to perform upgrade using slackpkg upgrade-all (except kernel packages because they are different).

Yes to "slackpkg upgrade-all" as in the following steps

slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all

See this post for additional information about kernels and what SARPi3 is to Slackware ARM.
