hard to say, depends on many boundary conditions

could work, if all paths for eprint stuff are exactly the same; 'upgrade' is an independent issue
Of course, the most easy way!

export repoID  eprint XML <badID0..badIDn> will do that by default settings

import repoID eprint XML --enable-file-imports --enable-import-fields updatedPipedExportFile
overwrites even existing entries ...

Check if a correction of bad entries is useful, otherwise start from scratch.
Testing on a sandbox is _no_ bad idea :)
