"Upgrade droplet" API action gone?

There used to be an "upgrade droplet" action listed in the API docs, but it seems to have been silently removed recently without even a mention in the changelog, and trying to execute an upgrade action now gives a 410 (Gone) error ("The specified action type is no longer available.").

Did I miss a memo somewhere? Is the feature gone for good? What happened to it? And while I'm at it, what exactly did it do to begin with?

Hi, we did remove that option as it was specifically for manually allowing users to migrate to a newer hypervisor version. That migration is complete, as any Droplet not already upgraded was automatically upgraded as per this article https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-manually-initiate-droplet-upgrade-to-latest-digitalocean-cloud

If you have received an email notification from DigitalOcean stating that your droplet will be upgraded to the most recent version of our cloud soon, you have two options for proceeding: Do nothing and allow the automatic upgrade...
