I'm sorry to hear that the update didn't work for you (though overloaded servers in the first hours is a likely explanation).

In general, if you have issues with the installer please start it with --verbose, pipe the output to a file and report it in a bug report. We don't actually get that many of them ...

If you mean that two different installations should share it's directory / maintenance tool with another: Sorry, I don't see that happening.
