We do not have upgrade scripts. The package management is solid: if
xserver-xorg 6.9.0.dfsg.1-5 is installed, then xserver-xorg
6.9.0.dfsg.1-5 is installed. There's no halfway.
If a maintainer script fails, or there's file conflicts between
packages, or whatever, then apt/dpkg quite pointedly halt at that point
and make it quite obvious that you need fixing.

Yes. The log needs cleanup, news at 11 ...
