Upgrade term is used specifically for oracle when one have oracle database 9i and want to upgrade it to 10g.
And Migration is generic as previously stated. Like we have production version of 1.1 and we want to migrate as 1.2(It will affect both in database as well as application).While when we call upgradation we focus only on database.
