Is it bad to trade up your boyfriend for another guy who is better? (Better as in degree, occupation, personality, intelligence, looks etc...)

I wouldn't call it upgrading - that's pretty stupid to leave someone because they don't demonstrate one trait or something perfectly - or to go browsing for some guy that's hotter or whatev.
Love isn't perfect - so it's futile to seek perfection.
If the guy is a complete ass, treats you like sh*t, and does more damage than good - then yes I think an upgrade is in place. Same thing for the guys who end up with complete bitches.
Other than that - why give up a good thing trying to find the perfect guy? He doesn't exist.
One should have their priorities straight before " upgrading." Or simply just put in some damn effort to make sh*t work.
Don't run away from something that's fixable. And if it's not, and it's causing you that much trauma for the relationship, then okay that's understandable.
However, that's not upgrading, that's just trying to find romantic solace - which we all do so.2
