I ran the upgrade from the iso and after booting my raid 5 array no longer appears to exist. I will admit to on caveat that I was upgrading what was technically initially (months ago and before many changes to the OS) an ubuntu server install to ubuntu desktop. That fact aside is it really the default behavior of the upgrade to destroy a raid array. I am going to keep looking as I am sure I must have just missed something myself.
