Bug Description

Testing ISO, testcase "Install (manual paritioning re-using home partition) in Ubuntu Desktop i386 for Trusty Daily, I can't see the Upgrade Ubuntu option in the "Installation type" section of the installer. Has this be removed/deprecated or is the test case out of date?

The test case is broken. You can't "upgrade" from one version to the *same* version.

Upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04.1 should be possible though, for example.

The test case on the tracker must be updated to explain that the first installation must be a version of the release lower than the version to test.

Meanwhile, I will retest with an previous release installed and upgrade to the new ISO. But, yes, the instructions need to be clearer, thanks for the clarification.

@nskaggs - should this testcase even mention upgrade? Given that it's a "Install (manual partitioning re-using home partition)" I would expect it to only test that.
