For Pardus upgrading a distro is just means switching the default repository 
to new one. But we didn't provide any metadata to inform the users and aslo 
we didn't switch repos automatically. 

To upgrade a newer Pardus version users will have to decide themself and 
change their repository configurations to new ones.

Maybe adding a upgrade-system method can deal with these for each 
distro/package manager but i'm not sure how distros will inform the PK for a 
new release.
