[Condition] Expired license is on the disk

Account details:
User-ID: exp+Business@gmail.com
Password: 360logica

When expired user click on 'Check Now' to download the updates then it prompts to RENEW the license instead of download the updates.

Expected result: Expired user should able to download the updates.

This test case has the condition "All updates in channel do not require subscription (Mono, Xamarin Studio)".

That does not apply in this case, so RESOLVING as INVALID. 

Now, I'm surprised that you're actually getting the updates here, as we have in the past been very unforgiving with users in the EXPIRED state. I agree that RENEW is better here, but I have no cases yet to do RENEW *from* the expired state.
