Maybe you want to think about these two alternatives:

- add a NEWS.Debian so users with apt-listchanges installed will see the
advice (the advice should of course also be mentioned in README.Debian
or a similar file) - this is IMO the most common way for upgrade/update

- add the debconf message to the package in general (a note like: If you
are upgrading from a version below ..." <OK>) and done
