Bug Description

Attempting the upgrade case by using the installer image on the iso, the option to upgrade is grayed out and not selectable. Ubiquity should allow an upgrade using the installer image.

I interpret this to mean that you booted a 12.10 image on a 12.04.1 system and were not present the option to upgrade your existing install to 12.10. Is that correct?

Brian, yes that's exactly it. Booted 12.10 image, on 12.04.1 system. No option to upgrade was given.

This bug was fixed in the package partman-auto - 103ubuntu2

partman-auto (103ubuntu2) quantal; urgency=low

  * Make reuse option use preferrably grub-mount, over mount. As it has
    more chances of succeeding. This makes reuse options become available
    once again on the desktop/server CDs (LP: #1050562)
