More details about USG20-VPN and configuration conversion tool and future support
This page states
Question 3: Does this Configuration Converter work with the USG20-VPN to USG FLEX?
Answer: No. The Configuration Converter does not support the USG20(W)-VPN series.
USG20-VPN (after badge engineering, USG50 Flex) is a supported device.
Receives firmware updates.
Won't be expired as USG40 (supported by conversion tool) and all other no more supported after 31/12/2022...
It's not supported for configuration conversion.
This means: I should not buy and advice at all USG20-VPN because will be dead sooner than USG100 Flex and bigger brothers?
I'd like to avoid buying 2-3 USG-20 replacement for a device that will expire at the end of 2023... Or my customers are gonna rip me off and not kindly ask, but require a brand change.
Hi @mMontana,General Firewall hardware life cycle is 5 years, so there is no EOL plan on FLEX series at this moment,which means Flex 50 will not be end of service in 3 years.Even after EOS, maintenance builds will still be available for industry wide critical variability issues and Security license can run for another 5 years.Thank you

January 2023 + 3 years = December 2025
January 2022 + 3 years = December 2024I will not consider the answer in any way as official statement the date for End of support/end of life of the lineup.
Hi @mMontana,By now, We have no plans for EOS. So there is no clarification for the road map. we will have official announcement in advance before it enters EOS.Thank youKevin0
