2.4 Upgrade lost all DNS when using dnscrypt

I use freebsd to enable dnscrypt and DNSSEC on my router, and all was working until I upgraded to pfsense 2.4. After the upgrade, I lost all DNS even when I ssd'd to the router. To fix this issue I had to go to System -> General Setup and add in a few new DNS Servers to temporally work around the block. I added 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. After this, I could resolve addresses. From here I "pkg install dnscrypt-proxy" and found out the issue was the upgrade lost my packages. After reinstalling and upgrading the "pkg install dnscrypt-proxy" command I could get everything working again.
Thought i'd share my issue in case others see it.
on 2.4, rerun pkg install dnscrypt-proxy

In other words: You did something unsupported, and to the surprise of nobody, it broke.
Don't do that.
