If it did that automatically that would break a lot of systems and
would need a bug report.  It is impossible to handle all custom kernel
situations automatically.  If you have built a custom kernel
presumably it is because you need (or want) a custom kernel.  Stopping
the upgrade with a notification of the problem (which it does) is the
best that it can do.  That is not a bug.  That is the best it can do.

To be clear automatically creating /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade would NOT
"prevent upgrade issues" but would instead *create* upgrade issues.
