The current JUpgrade utility installs version 2.5 and many of the reviews indicate that this process can be buggy and still require that data be moved over manually.   I wonder if my time is better used creating a whole new install and manually move data over? 

If so, you don't have a 1.7 or 2.5 SiteShaper for my template (Touch of Soul).  Do I then install a new basic 2.5 joomla and then import the template manually? 

Previously, when trying to import the template into a 2.5 test install, I got a successful install message for uploading the template, but then was unable to locate the template in the template manager in order to activate it.   Thanks for your advice for each of these questions.

If you are going to create a fresh install then you would install a fresh installation of Joomla 2.5 and then install the template and assign it as default through the template manager.
