Laravel/Symfony Upgrade like a PRO 🦄

Hello community 👋

Today, I spent the entire day migrating a huge project from version 6.3 to 6.4 on the Symfony framework. I found myself wondering if there was a way to make it easier. Is there a method to automatically check for potential issues that could potentially disrupt the project?

Is there a tool that can potentially help overcome these problems?

I suppose the best way to address this is to cover the project with unit tests. However, in real-life projects, there are often challenges such as pressure from business stakeholders and MVP mindsets that force developers to ignore duties related to unit tests.

If there are people in the community with experience in automated package upgrades, please share your experiences in the comments.
