The Gluon framework's v2021.1.x branch has reached its end of life.
You can find documentation about the release life cycle of the Gluon
branches on the GitHub Wiki .
We have stopped maintaining this branch and will not create a release
based on it anymore.
Mentioned Gluon branch is based on the OpenWrt 19.07 branch which
already reached its end of life in April 2022 .
Updating to the v2022.1.x release series is the recommended course of
action, please take note of the corresponding release notes  .

v2020.2.x EOL announcement which is still relevant:
If your current release is older than v2021.1, please read the release
notes of all releases starting with v2020.1 carefully as some deprecated
features have been removed. We also introduced ways to deal with these

v2020.2.x branch, if you're still on firmware based on a release older

updated yet because of being offline or so. A solution may be to ship a
new autoupdater-path with the v2020.2.x based release, so that older
firmware releases will always do a two-step update. There are also
communities using a new path for each major release to work around
