Restoring a config in 2.4.2 with 2.3.X Security/Errata Only repo selected breaks PHP
After attempting to repair repos for a failed upgrade, config was exported from 2.3.4-P1 and imported to a fresh install of 2.4.2.
Console began spitting errors citing "/etc/inc/certs.inc line 44".
Cause was found to be 2.3.X Security Errata Only repo selected before config export.
Setting repo to 2.4.X prevents the issue.

2.3.4 Config with 2.3.X Errata Repo restored to 2.4 systems will break.
2.3.4 Config with 2.4.X Repo restored to 2.4 works as expected.
2.4.2-p1 Config with 2.3.X Errata Repo restored to 2.4.3-DEV (Pre-8208 fix) will break.
2.3.4 or 2.4.2-p1 Config with 2.3.X Errata Repo restored to 2.4.3-DEV (Post 8208 fix 2.4.3.a.20180313.1628 or later) works as expected and the issue is resolved.
