Sure, we do the same, but with Chef. But we still follow that process. Lock
in inter broker and log message format to existing version first. upgrade 1
binary and restart 1 broker.

Then check that everything is OK before proceeding one step at a time. And
OK check is at minimum that there are no under replicated or offline
partitions reported by the cluster.

If you had offline partitions, was it across multiple brokers, or just 1?
And at which part in that process did it happen?

Also, are all topics configured for HA?  ( RF => 2, and RF >

Being forced into choosing an unclean leadership election sounds to me like
there was at least 1 broker which hadn't recovered yet and I'd expect there
to be something in its logs. And if you were following the rolling upgrade
method correctly it was very likely part way through it?
