"Do you want to start the upgrade?" gives 56 K modem estimate

Bug #764836 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

1. Install the previous version of Ubuntu.
2. Launch Update Manager or Software Updater.
3. Advance to the "Do you want to start the upgrade?" step.

What you see: Something like "You have to download a total of 1,102M. This download will take about 2 hours 20 minutes with a 1Mbit DSL connection and about 1 day 18 hours with a 56k modem."

It's likely that some people still use Ubuntu on dial-up, but giving an estimate this way makes Ubuntu look old. We should find a more sensible way to present the estimate, for example, showing the 56k version only if you *do* have a 56k connection.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReleaseUpgrades#ready>: "The time should be calculated based on how long the package indexes took to download..."
