Thanks for your bugreport.

Could you please check if you have the package "casper" installed?

If it turns out to be a issue with casper being installed I will add a check in update-manager.

I'm curious as to whether you are perhaps upgrading a USB stick created with usb-creator. If so, this is bug 292159.
