It's not a problem, it's just a warning that if you continue, it won't
necessarily be easy (or safe) to roll back to the release version
because the database schema isn't going to match.  All the usual
disclaimers about making a database back up apply here, then move
bravely forward!  You shouldn't have to "do" anything, other than
making sure the backend and the frontend match in version.
