Which is where I got what I wrote from:

  If the system being upgraded provides critical services for your
  users or the network[2], you can reduce the downtime if you do a
  minimal system upgrade, as described in Section 4.4.5, “Minimal
  system upgrade”, followed by a kernel upgrade and reboot, and then
  upgrade the packages associated with your critical services.
  Upgrade these packages prior to doing the full upgrade described
  in Section 4.4.6, “Upgrading the system”. This way you can ensure
  that these critical services are running and available through the
  full upgrade process, and their downtime is reduced.


  In some cases, doing the full upgrade (as described below)
  directly might remove large numbers of packages that you will want
  to keep. We therefore recommend a two-part upgrade process: first
  a minimal upgrade to overcome these conflicts, then a full upgrade
  as described in Section 4.4.6, “Upgrading the system”

Sections 4.1.3. and 4.4.5. of
