Should be pretty straight forward.
Key thing is to run setup with parameter SKUUPGRADE:
setup.exe SKUUPGRADE=1

Then in the SQL installation dialogs do not choose 'Default instance', choose 'Installed instances' and pick the correct one which you are going to upgrade. Express doesn't have the same default instance name as SQL full installation.

Looks like it would try to do a fresh install instead of upgrade. Double check the startup parameters.
