Doing an upgrade is an intensive process, lots of disk and CPU activity, you 
can expect your machine to run hotter than usual when this is happening.  So 
if you have some parts of your machine that are of marginal quality then they 
may fail at such a time even though they usually work.

I suggest running some benchmarks or kernel builds overnight to see if that 
causes a similar problem.  If so you have to look at your hardware and try 
replacing things that may be faulty.
