Yes. It is the standard way endorsed by the maintainers. They only
recommend against upgrades to new releases (e.g. 4.x->5.x).

I've gone from 4.2 (IIRC)->4.3->4.4...4.6 with almost no problems. The
only one requiring extra work was when the sqlite (IIRC) got updated.

Also keep in mind if you mix repositories, use priorities and/or include
and exclude commands in the repo files.
