General messages

Dear developers,

Obviously the project maintainers explored this topic deeply but were unable to find any issues into the code. We believe some of the issues might come from third party upgrade tools that would not follow PrestaShop migration path. If you have valuable feedback, feel free to tell us on GitHub!

In the meantime, work continues on 1.7.7.x branch to prepare the first Release Candidate and on develop branch to bring some long-awaited features for 1.7.8, such as php7.4-compatibility or native lazy-loading.
