Hi,

many thanks for your message. Images are created manually by the devloper and they are refreshed time by time. It should not be an issue to use an older image as it will update to latest DietPi release on first boot automatically.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

There shouldn't be an issue to use the older image as you will be updated to 7.0.2 automatically on first boot.

But let's ask the developer @MichaIng if he can refresh the image anyway 8)

Correct, the system is updating automatically, so aside of a little longer first boot setup process there is no difference in the resulting system.

But let us know if you do face issues that can be resolved with an updated image.
