You still have the option of a custom installation while doing a fresh
install, and a good deal of individual package selection inside each of
the groups that are listed in the custom choice menu.

Asking anaconda to allow you further choices during an UPGRADE is not
reasonable when the result is an upgrade of just what you already have
chosen by use before and you then have the opportunity to add anything
you wish or remove the new version of whatever you have been using
