Cause
This behavior occurs because the server is a cluster member. Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2 do not support an upgrade of clustered servers from previous versions. This is because of incompatibilities between the cluster versions. 
Workaround

Method 1: Clean installation

  1. Perform a clean installation of Windows Server 2008 or a later version on the nodes in the cluster.
