Flagging as out of date does not indicate a problem with the package, so I
would feel safe upgrading. I would expect any problems to be mentioned on
the news feed (depending on the problem and the package, but definitely the
kernel qualifies).

And when it comes to the kernel it will have spent time in testing before
being given a clean bill of health.
