Bug Description

Ubuntu Alternate 20120227.2 AMD64

On a system without network connection (cable disconnected), cdromupgrade asks "Include latest updates from Internet"
It should check for network connectivity before asking this question.

I have a related problem - trying to do an offline upgrade (with or without the network connected) does't work. I run cdromupgrade and choose not to download updates from the Internet but it appears to still pull the entire upgdare from the network (the CD drive is inactive). Disconnecting the network lead before starting causes errors that itcan't access the Ubuntu domains.
