asa 8.4 to 9.1 update anyconnect considerations

I'm researching an asa update from 8.4(7)30 to 9.1.7.23.  Some remote users not simple to admin still have older AnyConnect versions 2.4, 2.5, and 3.1.  Disregarding that 2.x support has ended, would these versions continue to work after the update or break?   Would the https/SSLcertificate currently used require any change at the ASA and clients or continue working as it has been?    Would current licensing continue to work without requiring modification?  Primary concern right now is to not break connectivity for vpn users in distant places until they can be updated or migrated to another solution at a later time.   Thanks

According to the following doc you need minimum AnyConnect 3.1.x on ASA 9.1:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/compatibility/asa-vpn-compatibility.html

, so I believe the AnyConnect versions 2.4, 2.5 will not work.

License and certificate should not be a problem, you need new licenses for AnyConnect 4.x features.

Not sure you know, AnyConnect is automatically upgraded first time you connect if you have a newer package on the ASA.

present problem in this environment with the scenario of anyconnect clients automatically updating from the asa would be any users on the windows clients lacking local admin privileges for the installation to complete which is another subject.
