Today I tried to upgrade a system which apparently hadn't been upgraded for ages: it still ran 42.3.
I did it he way I am used to: choose for a fresh install, and import the filesystem layout and mountpoints from the existing system. (It still puzzles me why the default proposition from the installer always is to re-arrange the existing filesystems on disk, in a way that is destroying all data on it.. Why not at least keep the /home partition intact?).
Or, the other way around, does it exist and should it be deleted for a successful install?
Moreover, the message doesn't give a clue as to what to do.
Well, you were in expert setup, it is assumed you know what you are doing ...
Arguably, he is forced into expert mode because the installation start menu lacks one option:
1) fresh install 2) upgrade existing installation 3) install on top of existing partition
3 is missing.
