Bug Description

Testcase: http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/testcases/1470/info
Hardware: KVM-VM, 2 vCPUs, 2G memory, 30G virtio disk, Cirrus graphics

For the second install, I selected the live-image and then the install <family> icon. When it comes to select the install type, I only get "install alongside" or "erase" but no "upgrade". I can manually make this happen by manual partitioning and only erasing the non-home partition.

Can you file a bug using ubuntu-bug from when you are up on the partitioning screen?
Or alternatively include:
* syslog
* partman log
* /var/log/installer/*

We should not be offering 14.04.1 alongside 14.04.1 installation. Something is very borked up.
