ISO testing: cannot select "Upgrade Ubuntu" as per the testcase
instructions (#1347670)

Status: Fix Released

Unable to test this, the "Upgrade Ubuntu" option in the "Installation type" section of the installer was not preset. I triple checked this on different machines (Lenovo X220 and a virt installation) to make sure I was not missing anything. Has this option been removed/deprecated.

Installing on regular BIOS machine (non-uefi).
