I disagree. He may have a legitimate reason for not upgrading (such as current
kernels not working with his hardware). And it may be that some software
on the machine is not stock F7, but in fact more recent versions of critical
software. At this point we don't know. Certainly, strongly suggesting an
upgrade is reasonable, but trying to use unrelated problems as leverage
seems over the line to me.
