[owncloud-devel] Bug#815963: Warn users about unsupported upgrade path

I created a PR at https://github.com/owncloud/core/pull/22691

This is super dangerous stuff from Debian and I *HIGHLY* would advise
anybody from NOT using distribution packages for ownCloud.

Highly irresponsible from them to risk user data like that. Honestly, the
maintainer should know better.
