I'm afraid that's far too vague and open question. We don't know what your setup is, or what problems you might encounter.

  • Read the release notes for 5.1 and 5.2
  • Read the upgrade documentation
  • Try it on a test system.

I'd also recommend investigating your existing errors - upgrading a system on top of a set of unknown errors is asking for trouble, as you could easily compound them. You need to know what their causes are before you can safely upgrade.

From 5.0.7 --> 5.2.5 these are major features (for me):

JIRA 5.2

  • Instant search — new instant search bar and search results, shared filters on the issue navigator, pre-built system filters
  • Background reindexing
  • SSL configuration via JIRA configuration tool
  • Redesigned project workflows configuration
  • Copy/edit issue collectors

JIRA 5.1

  • Inline editing and fewer page reloads
  • Issue collector
  • Easier workflow editing
  • Deactivate users
  • 'Autowatch' issues you create or comment on
  • Remote and local JIRA issue link improvements
  • Automatic time zone detection
  • User Gravatar support
