System Update no longer show 2.3.5
I switched the System / Update / System Update from 2.3.5 (Latest Stable (version 2.3.x) to Latest Stable (version 2.4.x).
Now I can't go back to 2.3.x ... only 2.4 are showed.
In Diagnostics / Backup & Restore / Config History is see that change.
- <pkg_repo_conf_path>/usr/local/share/pfSense/pkg/repos/pfSense-repo-legacy-23.conf</pkg_repo_conf_path> + <pkg_repo_conf_path>/usr/local/share/pfSense/pkg/repos/pfSense-repo.conf</pkg_repo_conf_path>
I tried to revert the config, reboot, but it still doesn't offer 2.3.x. This is because the pfSense-repo-legacy-23.conf is no longer present on the system.
I disable the Disable the automatic dashboard auto-update check for now, but the Package Manager is unusable as it now offer 2.4.4 packages that might create problems on 2.3.5.

2.3.5 is EOL very soon: https://www.netgate.com/blog/pfsense-release-2-3-x-eol-reminder.html
So update to 2.4.4.
I know that. I will probably update to 2.4.4 in the near future.
But the pfSense-repo-legacy-23.conf should remain available and present on the system to prevent system problems if an unaware user update a package from the wrong base.
If you did try to install a package it should fail before actually installing anything as they all have php7 as a dependency which won't be met.
>>> Setting vital flag on lang/php56... done. WARNING: Current pkg repository has a new PHP major version. pfSense should be upgraded before installing any new package. Failed
@stephenw10 I didn't try but it's good to know it would not break anything.
