The last step (Extensions) is displayed only if there are invalid
extensions installed, i.e. extensions that _must_ be upgraded in order
to work. So the explanation could be that either:

* XWiki Enterprise - UI All XAR was not detected by the Extension
Manager as an extension installed on your subwikis or
* the Extension Manager thought that the old version of XWiki
Enterprise - UI All works with the new XWiki version, so the upgrade
was optional (i.e. the extension was outdated but not invalid).

Do you remember if XWiki Enterprise - UI All was listed in Extension
Updater administration section under Invalid Extensions or under
Outdated Extensions?

Hope this helps,
