Thanks for all the hard work put into this!

I noticed a small issue during the upgrade using the sysupgrade in Luci. 
After the first attempt, it showed I was still running 21.02.2. Flashing 
the same file again gave me the correct version (21.02.3). (the status 
overview also showed the old kernel version and a low uptime, so there 
was a reboot and I did not misread the version).
I also only have the latest binary for a single router on my PC, so no 
mistake possible there as well.

The only difference between my first and second attempt was that I did 
not tick the box "Include in backup a list of current installed packages 
at /etc/backup/installed_packages.txt" the second time. I do have some 
extra packages installed and updated some during the 21.02.2 lifetime.

Router is a TP Link Archer C7 v5 that was running 21.02.2 before the 

If more people experience this, it might be worth spending time on it. 
Otherwise, it might be best to just retry and be happy!
