The new Installer seems to work different than the old installers of the versions of 5.7.x.

OK [o, Enter], Cancel [c]
Express Install (uses default settings) ,
Custom Install (recommended for advanced users) ,

Does anybody know, how to select the Confluence installation i want to update.
I have thre running Confluence installations in
and i want to update the test instance.
Did you try Upgrading using Standalone Zip 5.8.2,
Process looks like this.
I tried Upgrading with Installer file for Windows and it showed the existing Installation directory.
Did not try on Linux, Will let you know if i have same issue as you are facing.
It is always better to Upgrade using standalone tar.gz for Linux or Standalone zip for Windows. This is out of my experience in Upgrading Confluence for many Clients.
