You should read what's in the yellow box, the most important part is the 'Reason: ...' part.

This message and behavior are normal, and as @Borromini said, read the yellow box.
Yes you can upgrade safely to 21.02 (I have 3 devices running it). Once done, go to Network, interfaces, and Luci will "translate" your network config from swconfig syntax to DSA syntax. Reboot and you're good.

Hi Guys,

I upgraded to 21.02 but some problems and only solutions, for me, was reset and reconfigure.
Now all works very well with ver. 21.02.
I have again one problem:

root@OpenWrt:~# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                 3.3M      3.3M         0 100% /rom
tmpfs                    59.7M      1.1M     58.7M   2% /tmp
/dev/ubi0_1              17.6M    672.0K     16.0M   4% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay       17.6M    672.0K     16.0M   4% /
tmpfs                   512.0K         0    512.0K   0% /dev

I can't use all spae in my router, ver 21.02 can't solve old problem.

I didn't write it, but starting from scratch was also a good option. You know that you start from clean, so you won't have any issue later while upgrading to future RCs or final.
What's wrong with the memory space ?
