1. probably.

2. Anytime you do a major upgrade like that, expect the worst.
You absolutely need a good backup of, at the very least, your personal docs.

What if the upgrade goes wrong? Or your laptop runs out of power partway through? Or any one of a million other fail modes.

You cannot assume that it will all go perfectly. It probably will, but maybe not.
