recent Ubuntu pro client update


I've been following this thread on the Mint forum but it's gone off track like they usualy do there. Recent updates have added an opt-in for pro on my Linux Lite 6.6.

I've found this recent post.

--- Quote ---Previously Ubuntu did not provide security patches for "Universe" repo packages (instead relying on upstream patches to happen when they happen). The Ubuntu security team are now producing in-house security patches for these packages, but only where Pro has been opted into (which is free for personal use).

Will opting into pro cause any issues with my system i/e live kernel patches etc?
