All sites have these upgrades and they are necessary. Would be nice to be warned before they occur. Can plan to not be working on a hub, comment, etc. either before the shutdown or afterwards.
The site does warn us before planned upgrades.
But if there are sudden problems that arise, they can't. And it's just sort of a fluke that we the users wind up seeing the same "system maintenance" screen in both instances.
