I've done as you describe on Intel, AMD and ARM devices.  But, only after reading the documentation.  I got the following paragraph from this news release:


"Upgrades to Debian 9 from the previous release, Debian 8 (codenamed Jessie), are automatically handled by the apt-get package management tool for most configurations. As always, Debian systems may be upgraded painlessly, in place, without any forced downtime, but it is strongly recommended to read the release notes as well as the installation guide for possible issues, and for detailed instructions on installing and upgrading."

Good luck,
