Description

See #12392.

"Old" here means "definitely too old to have an IUK". We are currently publishing IUKs for 2 versions so version older than 12 weeks will never have IUKs.

Note that we might decide to publish more IUKs in the future. So it would be good to have a mechanism in place to remember updating this setting if we decide to ship more IUKs.

This mechanism would also become obsolete if we decide to do #11131#note-6.

Next steps: Tails Upgrader should point to the manual upgrade if users are trying to upgrade a Tails version that is older than 12 weeks.

I think "12 weeks" needs to be adjusted a bit since we now provide automatic upgrades for the last 2 releases.

Once we'll have endless upgrades (#15281), this will become a duplicate of solving #15288 in the code instead of the doc, as suggested in #15288#note-9.
