When I did this, I got into a perpetual reboot cycle because of 
gst-plugins-farsight crashing. It was necessary for me to

a) switch off the lifeguard reset logic with the flasher program
b) Remove gst-plugins-farsight and the one package it depended upon
c) switch lifeguard reset back on (again, with the flasher).

Your mileage may vary, but I would suggest avoiding gst-plugins-farsight 
until it is announced to be fixed.

other than that, I was able to upgrade via apt-get.
