Shouldn't the image-update take care of that ?

No. The 'issue' here is that if you find that the new boot environment
does not work for you for whatever reason you will need to revert to
the previous environment. However if  you have upgraded the pool
then this will not be possible as the older version of the software
will have no knowledge about the new version.

And is it safe to do an upgrade ?

As long as you are happy with the new environment.

Thanks
