I realize that e.g. OpenSUSE has a DVD-based upgrade mechanism but at
the same time they don't have different 'flavours'.
Even if you incorporated it into some installer, you would have to do
the logic first.
Recently I tried installing Unity in Kubuntu.... I did not succeed.....
I don't think there is public documentation of what package or
metapackage changes actually occur from one installation to the next, in
terms of upgrading?
It's probably a case of a few people knowing everything, or stuff being
I don't know.
I only go by what's visible.....
