"Upgrade" a safe option?

Go to solution Solved by David Nahmani,

My i9 iMac is still on Catalina. Now that all my 3rd party plugins are supported on Ventura, I've decided to move into the current decade. Is the "Upgrade" option in system preferences generally considered a safe option? When setting up a new Mac I've always started fresh, but was hoping in this case to avoid that hassle.

Yes, it's perfectly safe, in fact that's what Apple recommends: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT213265

It's basically the same thing as clicking the "Get" button in the App Store: it downloads and runs the Ventura installer. 

I'm all for clean installs whenever possible/needed but in the case of a macOS upgrade it really is a no brainer, just click the upgrade now button and you'l be fine.
