The upgrade to OpenVPN 2.4.0 makes changes that are incompatible with previous
configurations. Take **special care** if you depend on VPN connectivity for
**remote access**! Administrative interaction is required:

  * Configuration is expected in sub directories now. Move your files from
`/etc/openvpn/` to `/etc/openvpn/server/` or `/etc/openvpn/client/`.

  * The plugin lookup path changed, remove extra `plugins/` from relative paths.

  * The systemd unit `openvpn at .service` was replaced with `openvpn-
client at .service` and `openvpn-server at .service`. Restart and reenable

This does not affect the functionality of `networkmanager`, `connman` or
