At least as far as I can tell. In both Alpha I & II I've done partial upgrades and neither time have I experienced any subsequent problems. In fact the updates that are not selected seem to vanish after these upgrades.

I waited in Alpha II for several days for the error to clear before hitting Install.

Was the Partial Upgrade error an error?

It depends. Sometimes packages are indeed meant to be removed. You have to look at the detail of what the upgrade actually did or preferably, was proposing to do. ie check first before applying the upgrade.
