Tested on RHEL5-Server-U11 with Satellite 5.6 installed. Installed the rhn-upgrade package, and then attempted an upgrade to Satellite-5.8-RHEL-6-20170111.1 x86_64.

# ./install.pl --skip-system-version-test --upgrade
* Starting Red Hat Satellite installer.
* Performing pre-install checks.
ERROR: Upgrade flag passed, but could not find the rhn-package in 5.8 version.
Please check version of installed rhn-upgrade package.
