I didn't do an upgrade but I replaced an SRX last week. Went from an SRX210 with 12.1X to an SRX345 with 18.4R. Almost the whole configuration was copy&paste. The interface names were different, but that was about it. I see no reason why an upgrade wouldn't have worked: it's basically the same as copy&pasting an old config to a new OS release.
