I'm trying to install ubuntu 18.04 over an existing ubuntu install with an encrypted root directory. After first trying the upgrade, it would only boot into busybox, and I think the problem is that it couldn't mount my root directory because it doesn't know it exists. (error message, "ubuntu-vg not found"). I am now doing a full install from a live usb, having checked "something else" as my installation option. How do I mark the various partitions to get it to see my encrypted root partition? I mark /dev/mapper-ubuntu-vg-root to be mounted at /, but do I need to do anything to the physical volume /dev/sda3 where it sits? If I mark that as the encrypted volume, it asks me for a password, even though there is one already there from before, and I don't want to loose any data. Here is the installation screenshot with sda1 as efi and sda2 as biosgrub (for secure boot):
