not really

some releases ago it was no problem to do a dist-upgrade with yum
where all services wehre running without any interruption

FAIK with F12 httpd crashed with the restart since openssl was updated
and not consistentn while the upgrade - this is a bad behavior and
should be replaced with a notice "you should call systemctl restart httpd.service"
instead killig running services which would work even days after the upgrade
