I have upgraded firewalld on FreedomBox testing and chose to keep
FreedomBox's configuration instead of the package maintainer's
version. The upgrade seems to have gone through without issues.

The diff as you said is changing the default zone from external
to public and adding the line "FirewallBackend=iptables" to the

root at FreedomBox /etc/firewalld # diff firewalld.conf
firewalld.conf.dpkg-dist 6c6
< DefaultZone=external
> DefaultZone=public
> # FirewallBackend
> # Selects the firewall backend implementation.
> # Choices are:

> #	- iptables (iptables, ip6tables, ebtables and ipset)
> FirewallBackend=iptables

You can try replacing your firewalld.conf file with the previous
version (see attached) and restart firewalld or a do a system
