I don't think that the principle of rolling releases support such mistakes more
than as you use another distribution. You only move the timepoint more in the
future but if such a distribution do the step from at example A to B than you
have to do this "nightmare" search of changed config files for all packages.
That's all because mistakes are even possible instead no one wants to make them.
I think, and this is more my experience, that you will get a lot of more stories
about updates in archlinux which runs without a problem instead the list of
packages was enormous.
See you, Attila
