Is there any way I can get an upgrade on this upcoming flight?

I've got a ton of United frequent flier miles, and due to my work I'm bound by the Fly America Act. I am traveling to Munich on business in a couple weeks, and the flight is a code-share between United and Lufthansa (purchased as a United flight, operated by Lufthansa). The company will only pay for economy tickets, so I wanted to use my miles to upgrade.
United claims (both on their website and by phone) that they don't upgrade code shares, but I've heard rumors otherwise. Has anyone been successful with this? Is there a secret phone number I need to call or something, or am I just screwed? I have Premier status on United, if it matters.
