  Upgrade menu option should not appear for old releases

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “ubiquity” source package in Precise:

Bug description:
  As documented in bug 891711 if you insert a bootable disk with a
  previous release of Ubuntu, say 11.10, into a system running a later
  release of Ubuntu (12.04) you are presented with an option to
  "Upgrade" from the new release to the old one.  This reinstalls Ubuntu
  while preserving your home and installed applications.  However, this
  was not an envisioned use case (and subsequently is not tested) and is
  problematic as the kernel from the new release is not removed.

  The option to upgrade from a new release to an old release should not
  appear in Ubiquity.
