k3s - v1.20.9+k3s1

This release updates Kubernetes to v1.20.9

For more details on what's new, see the Kubernetes release notes

:warning: Important Upgrade Note :warning:
If you are using K3s in a HA configuration with an external SQL datastore, and your server (control-plane) nodes were not started with the --token CLI flag, you will no longer be able to add additional K3s servers to the cluster without specifying the token. Ensure that you retain a copy of this token, as is required when restoring from backup. Previously, K3s did not enforce the use of a token when using external SQL datastores.

You may retrieve the token value from any server already joined to the cluster:

cat /var/lib/rancher/k3s/server/token
