I am new to the whole Ubuntu phenom, are these problems normal with updates?

I set it to update, the update manager hung twice so I had to restart. on the second restart my BIOS claimed that there was no boot disk. restarted again and got to log on to ubuntu and got a warning that i was entering a safe mode, then it restarted itself.

I am now downloading an iso. for a full install. Can I expect this each time I update or is this my fault?

well bios errors are going to have nothing to do with ubuntu's upgrade, sounds like you have some hardware gremlins.

And about expectations for future upgrades, my work computer upgraded flawlessly from 8.04. Its a p.o.s. hp slim form factor, my home computer also upgraded flawlessly, and it is vastly different hardware. I haven't found any bugs thus far.
