As the changes between 3 and 4 are pretty big (Kernel 2.6 and everything
around that, SELinux) I wouldn't recommend upgrading.

If you have a test box available on which you can copy the complete
content of the other box you could try there with booting the 4.4 isos
and type "linux upgradeany" on the kernel command line.

But as said: I really wouldn't recommend it.
