At present magento is growing more and more. Magento released the latest stable community version 188.8.131.52 on 5th July 2012. And it is good practice to upgrade our magento store to latest version to get the benefits of latest version’s functionalities.
But we have seen some horror stories on the web about people who upgraded their live site without testing for errors and compatibility issues. So be sure that while upgrading magento first of all we must upgrade it in test environment and not touch the live site until the test environment comes out ok.
Here are some common problems with magento while upgrading to 1.7 discussed in detail:
Problem1: We were working with our custom theme and after upgrading magento to 1.7, when we tried to open the My Wishlist page it gave the following error:

Problem3: In a customized theme we noticed that Google had stopped indexing our site. We checked and Google analytics number was still set in Admin -> System -> Configuration -> Sales -> Google API -> Google Analytics and enabled. But when we checked the source code of our site, there was no Google analytics code there at all.
Solution: Solution of above problem is: Just remove / rename the
file from your custom theme. So now it will use the googleanalytics.xml file from the /base/default/ theme.
Hope this will help you.
