  Any update can "impact" the system.  It's a very general question.

  To be honest, you really want to upgrade to 3.0.21.  It has a host of fixes and tweaks over 3.0.4.

  Generally speaking, changing the database won't affect FreeRADIUS.

  As with most of these issues, if it's a VM... take a snapshot, and then upgrade.  If something goes wrong, revert to the previous snapshot.
