So, I think it's ok to leave this issue aside.

I have a suspicion why the templates don't get upgraded, but since we know how to fix them
manually, it's not release critical.

We'll open a ticket later.

can you confirm if you followed the steps exactly in regards to template
flags and more importantly the actual name - I believe in the code, during
upgrading, it will search for specific template name (i.e.
systemvm-vmware-4.11.3) and update it's DB values so it becomes a "SYSTEM"
instead of "USER" type that it was initially.
