No updates for in-contract non-EOL cisco devices

So I switched from HP gear to Cisco a few years ago, but recently discovered that our in-contract hardware, with an EOL of 2022 is no longer receiving security updates, even though that's exactly what the service contract promises.

https://community.cisco.com/t5/small-business-security/asa5505-software-update-to-9-4-to-resolve-security-advisory/m-p/3918845/highlight/true#M7158.

For now I'm willing to suspend disbelief and assume left hand hasn't quite understood what right hand has done. Waiting to hear back from their legal dept. If they don't start issuing security updates for in-contract hardware, then there is no way I'll ever get permission to buy any cisco kit ever again - and I'm quite sure I'm not the only one.
