This is the last release in the 5.0.x series. It's over, Linux 5.0 is done. The new kernels have the same "you must upgrade" notice as the previous kernels. Seeing that message attached to each new kernel-release is becoming a trend.

The last series of kernels released, 5.1.6, 5.0.20, 5.14.123, 4.19.47 and 4.9.180 made available on May 31th 2019, had a a notice saying "All users must upgrade" (we never did figure out why). The fresh new 5.1.7, 5.0.21 and 4.19.48 kernels have the same notice.[1][2]

There is - again - no information as to why you "must upgrade" NOW.

This marks the end of the 5.0 kernel series. It's market End-Of-Life as of 5.0.21.
