Unable to upgrade the ASM instance to release due to during the 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure installation the OUI complains about the next errors:

INS-40406: There is no previous version of grid software detected on the system.
Cause: The installer was not able to detect any existing Oracle Clusterware or ASM installation to upgrade.
Action: You can choose to install a new grid installation (Oracle Clusterware and ASM), and add it to an existing cluster, or you can make the node part of a new cluster. If you want to add the node to an existing cluster, then review Oracle Clusterware Administration and Deployment Guide and follow the add node procedure. If you want to create a new cluster, then select the option for a new installation.
