Is it safe to run `do-release-upgrade` for Armbian 22.08.2 Focal?

When discussing a problem make sure to provide full logs!

From what I've read regarding this it seems safe if you freeze firmware packages beforehand.

 

Those dist-upgrades are neither tested nor supported simply because Armbian does not have the resources to test those. Therefore if something goes wrong you are on your own. In any case create a backup of your system beforehand.
