fix upgrade notification
When a new version is out, users receive a notification message.
This message should point in some way to usb upgrade instructions.
It does "point in some way": the notification message points to the security announce, that reads "We strongly urge you to upgrade to Tails 0.17.2; (pointing to the release announce), that itself has a "I want to try it / to upgrade!" section. That section points to "Getting started", which is overkill for long-time users, so there’s room for improvement here. However, I’m not sure I want us to point users to upgrade instructions without giving them a chance to read the release notes including known issues, so IMHO the problem does not lie in the upgrade notification.
Calling this a potential documentation issue, then.

Given how messy the branch history is, I dare asking: is it on purpose that “I want to try it or to upgrade!” now leads directly to the download page instead of walking the new potential user through the getting started one?

Discussing what we should improve, we came to an agreement on pointing to the download page which concerns both first-time users and updaters. First part of the download page explicitly point to the ‘about’ & ‘warning’ pages for first-time users. Isn’t enough ?
Sorry for the mess.

I trust you made the right decision.
