Description of problem:

With https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1756454 merged oc adm upgrade --force is now used to allow upgrade when content validation fails.    The help for the --force option does not describe this behavior - the help is basically the same as the for the new --allow-upgrade-with-warnings option"

      --allow-upgrade-with-warnings=false: Upgrade even if an upgrade is in process or a cluster error is blocking the

      --force=false: Upgrade even if an upgrade is in process or other error is blocking update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 


How reproducible: Always

Disregard comment 1 - wrong bz.

Comment 4 zhou ying 2019-11-18 00:57:58 UTC
Confirmed with oc version, the issue has fixed:
[root@dhcp-140-138 oc-client]# oc version
Client Version: v4.3.0

[root@dhcp-140-138 oc-client]# oc adm upgrade -h
Upgrade the cluster to a newer version

      --force=false: Forcefully upgrade the cluster even when upgrade release image validation fails and the cluster is
reporting errors.
