Does the word upset mean sad or angry?

A bit of both, really. Generally more upset than angry.
'Upset' might well lead to tears.

Generally, it would mean angry or irritated.

yes, sometimes one, sometimes the other, sometimes both at the same time, and sometime disturbed by something without either sadness or anger. People who are angry are usually upset, people who are said are often upset, but many people who are upset are not either angry or sad.

2.to make a plan , situation etc. go wrong.
3.to make something fall over by hitting it accidentally.He cried suddenly, upsetting a glass of water

It can mean both depending upon the context. However, 'upset' can also be used with soft sarcasm to belittle the reaction of a snowflake or any overly-sensitive person: "It looks like you finally managed to upset him!"
