Should I "Force upgrade"? (mvebu DSA change warning)

When proceeding to install 21.02 on my mvebu > cortexa9 > linksys_wrt1900acs (Linksys WRT1900ACS v2), I received a message when trying to install OpenWRT. Can someone please confirm the proper way for me to proceed with installation of 21.02?

Do not keep settings when you sysupgrade. And override that warning with "force".

To make sure I understand, I should proceed with installing by selecting "Force upgrade" and just be sure to disable "keep settings"?

Yes, but first save a config for reference; which you can also just alter as per the above and do a restore, or setup from scratch. Also /etc/firewall.user may need changing.


Thank you hnyman & anomeome!
