If I understood it correctly, I think it actually says that the process may 
not be interrupted in any way, or the database is damaged in a way that cannot 
be repaired?

That's something else then destructive by definition ;-)

I suppose it's easy enough to copy the database to a backup, upgrade the live 
but if it fails (e.g. the "upgraded" version is corrupted), try again with the 
backup copy?

Kind regards,
