FreedomBox does expect the DefaultZone to be external. I think the
safest option is to:

1) Choose 'y' to take the maintainer's version of this file.

2) Run "sudo firewall-cmd --set-default-zone=external" to change the
DefaultZone back to external.

Of course this is not a good user experience, and will prevent automatic
upgrades of firewalld whenever the package modifies this file.

The root cause is that /etc/firewalld/firewalld.conf is a conffile, and
firewalld modifies this file when we run the above command.
