I never do a new install unless I need to setup a clean system.
I keep my system clean and stable. A new installation is like moving in a
new home - you have to arrange the furniture and everything again.
Upgrade is like painting the walls in new color and replacing or better
renovating some furniture.
It took me several years to get the home-office setup I am using, but since
5y+ I just upgrade software and/or hardware. Together with TDE it is a
blessing. You sit down, do your work and leave - no issues to debug, no
problems to solve.

Oddities are symptoms for disease - you choose to burn your "house" and
build a new one, I choose to fix. I guess it depends what kind of "house"
you have ... from hut to castle :) it makes a difference in the time to
build :)
