Have mine set to include level 3 stuff with no issues.
But I see this all the time. And especially new to linux if you insist on a having a need for a stable system.
And can't afford to be down. Then leave well enough alone.
See many new that can't afford to break there system and don't have the knowledge or expertise to fix.
If like learning by doing and love the ride on bleeding edge than go for it and enjoy.
Tho for me it just makes sense to make backups of data or partitions so I can roll back on a borked system.
The other question to answer. Exactly why do you need to upgrade kernel? I mean does it give or fix something broken on your setup?
Way too many have this physiological race condition to be fresh and updated to the minute kind of neurotic obsession.
Personally just don't get the need for most. Now if you love tweaking and fiddling under the hood and expect things to break.
And derive pleasure from solving and fixing then go for it. But always backup your data or make backups of your partitions!
