Upgrades are easy using live migration, unless new hardware removes a function. If you guarantee that the upgraded hardware supports everything the old hardware did the VMs should migrate without a problem. The problem becomes when you start a VM on the upgraded hardware but want to migrate it back to the older hardware. There a new feature may have been used that the old hardware doesn't have.

Speaking as someone who works a lot on defining new functions on IBM Z and having to deal with the complications of live migration, it is not a simple problem to deal with unless the application is aware something can change underneath. If every application checked proper CPU feature bits before using functions it would be easier, than the ones that do things like try an instruction and handle the interrupt if there is an illegal instruction.
