A few months ago, I had Ubuntu 12.04 (knowing it had reached its EOL) on my PC. 
I wanted to upgrade to Kubuntu 14.04, but the installer only let me delete it 
or format the entire disk.

The same happened when I first installed Xubuntu 16.04 last year.

Also, Lubuntu had the same issue.

That was awful, I had to copy my `/home` folder over to a USB stick and then 
copy it back to my PC.

I'm sure many people want this feature and Ubiquity is still lacking it. And we 
are in 17.10, something should have been done about it!

Anyway, I just want Ubiquity to feature a cross-distribution upgrade/transfer 
feature. (e.g. upgrade from Ubuntu 14.04 to Lubuntu 16.04, upgrade from Kubuntu 
16.04 to Xubuntu 17.10)

Can anyone please consider that?
