  Ubuntu asks to upgrade during an upgrade

Status in ubuntu-release-upgrader package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I was in the middle of an upgrade from Vivid to Wily. "sudo do-
  release-upgrade" was running on the system console.

  Suddenly, a dialog popped up, saying there's a new version of Ubuntu
  available, and do I want to upgrade?

  This dialog was confusing; I didn't know if it was part of the upgrade
  currently in progress, or some other upgrade. If I had clicked the
  "Upgrade" button, perhaps it would have launched a Xenial upgrade
  while the Wily upgrade was still running.

  I suggest that this dialog should be suppressed if an upgrade is
  currently in progress.
