If providing a back down procedure is a concern, verify that a current database backup has completed successfully. Backups are automatically performed during upgrades from versions 14.00.xx.xx and earlier to 14.01.xx.xx or later as part of the PostgreSQL 9.4 upgrade procedure. Using Version Migration and Fallback (VM&F) for these upgrades is recommended because booting to an alternate boot environment is the only supported back down procedure.
