Why haven't you mentioned Drupal 9? As of December 2021 I've updated most of the sites I look after to Drupal 9 (experience: mixed). I haven't decided how to label future version compatibility as D10 will be coming soon as well. The upgrade_status module is superb. You're bound to have issues with composer. Also watch out for a nasty session headers bug with redirect_after_login.(1 modules in list)

Ordinarily, if you grant a user "Administer Users", they can do everything *except* change the roles (they don't even see the checkboxes). You could give them 'Administer Permissions', but that also allows them to do other things.
This module lets you set which roles they are allowed to enable for a user. Administrators still see the roles checkboxes in the usual place (below 'status' on /user/123/edit), but everyone gets a new 'Roles' tab.
Works with D8 but not updated since April 2016.
I'm not using any patches, but there are a couple RTBC-ed the queue.
