⚠️ An issue has been reported with the `tootctl upgrade storage-schema` command in relation to DigitalOcean Spaces. Avoid executing that for now if you're using Spaces.

Also, a warning has been added to the release notes: You don't need to run that command at all. It would incur data transfer costs to do so as it moves files around.
