Not Solved
To say the updates "always" break something is a little over exaggerating. Also just to clear this one-click perception that Softaculous has, when (or if) Softaculous updates your forum's version of MyBB, the exact same changes have to be applied to your templates, css and so forth. Softaculous doesn't do that for you. The upgrade process isn't an AI, if the upgrade process was to be a "one click process" it would alter your custom themes, more than likely causing them to break more than they may do at the moment.

Your comparison to taking a car to the garage is somewhat wrong. As a car owner you should be able to pump up your tyres, or change your oil, or change your water, but you're not expected to upgrade your engine or fix parts of your car by yourself. There's a garage for that. Someone you pay to do that. At MyBB you should be able to change bits of your theme, change bits of your configuration, change your board URL. Even if you can't, there's free support. You're not expected to be able to code new features or fix MyBB's default features by yourself, there's a MyBB Team for that. Someone who most of the time does it for free, but sometimes you have to pay. That's a better comparison.

Again, we urge users to ask for support and even ask questions before upgrading - "Will we need to change any crucial templates?", "Is a feature being dropped?" etc.
