Bug Description

At the moment the autoupdater will make the installer to open a new control panel. This is not desirable, the best thing to do will be let the user know that the changes will take effect once we reboot and simply finish the installation.

I have made changes in the packaging script so that on upgrade, it doesn't launch ubuntuone-installer, and therefore, doesn't launch ubuntuone-control-panel.

However, it's suboptimal in that since we are running the bitrock installer in unattended mode, it can't show the "you need to reboot" message.

I have changes that will go into the next release that will hopefully make this a nicer experience. Rather than asking for or forcing a reboot after upgrade, the installer can take care of the upgrade for you. If it finds an uninstaller from a previous version, it goes ahead and stops the old executables, then uninstalls, then carries on with the new installer, which will then put you into a running state with the new U1 and no need to stop what you were doing.
