I  changed the repo to unstable

Then I did:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

That was it.

Can I just change my sources.list to unstable and upgrade?

I have run Sid before and am prepared to deal with some breakage
Yes, although I'd do a dist-upgrade (or full-upgrade if using aptitude).

Based on some earlier problems with Stretch and the discussions around
it, I'm not sure that sid is necessarily less stable. Apparently they
dump stuff into Stretch without anyone actually checking to see that
it can work with other Stretch libraries.

    Great. Thanks very much. We'll see how it goes.
