Urbackup-server force uninstall during Ubuntu upgrade

I’m running urbackup server on Ubuntu 17.10.
Today I wanted to upgrade to 18.04.

So I ran do-release-upgrade as suggested by the operating system, but it said that the urbackup-server package will be uninstalled during the system upgrade.

Is this supposed to happen?
Could I reinstall it later and retain all settings?


I did the same a couple of days ago and reinstalled the server as described here: Ubuntu 18.04 PPA

Worked perfectly fine for me.
