FS#2917 - E1700 soft bricks when updating from 18.07.8 to 19.07.2

After running sysupgrade on an 18.07.8 router with the 19.07.2 binary, the device soft-bricked. I have updated many times in the past with success.

To get 19.07.2 running, I had to use TFTP recovery to upload Linksys v1.0.0 firmware, and then install 19.07.2 via the Linksys firmware web interface using *-factory.bin

It was a bother so I did not test updating from 18.07.8 to 19.07.0 once I got it working.

A little more info:
