Upgrade Path

This is the first major release in the SafeHaven-5 product line and there is no upgrade path from any previous SafeHaven versions. Even the appliances (CMS/SRN) used in previous versions cannot be reused in SafeHaven-5 since it uses Ubuntu-16.04 as the base OS for the first time (in comparision, SafeHaven-4 uses Ubuntu-14.04 as the base OS).
