Progress launches to ISS from Vostochniy?  From TASS:
Upgrade of Gagarin launch pad to begin after Sept. 25 - Roscosmos

Gagarin's Start will not be available for use after the upgrades begin, which would after the September 25 launch of Soyuz MS-15.
Quote
According to Rogozin, once Russia begins the modernization of the facility, all launches to the International Space Station (ISS) will be possible only from one launch pad at Baikonur.

"Within a very short timeframe, it will be possible to launch Progress spacecraft [from the Vostochny launch center in Russia's Far East], and, therefore, to reduce the burden on the 31st pad during the modernization of the Gagarin’s Start," he added.

How much work at Vostochniy needs to be done to make this possible?

Re: Soyuz-2-1a.  What changes, if any, need to be made to make this possible?  Programming only?

It's possible because they are unmanned. Vostochny Soyuz-2 versions are different to Baikonur's so spacecraft and launcher require new
System designations upon completion of certification process for Progress-MS/UM to be processed and fly from Vostochny.

In addition to my previous post Mr Zak, per Facebook PM, says new Progress-MS specific processing stands and hardware would have to be built, shipped and installed at Vostochny which will take time to procure and certify so next year at the earliest is most likely when the switch could occur.

A good question is why they don't start to build the ramp for the future Soyuz-5 and the same time, that the ramp for Angara...?

They do not have the funds and manpower to build both. Angara is already underway but with some delays from corruption and other problems like usual. Soyuz-5 and 7 (Soviet Name meaning Union dropped in favour of Russian River Names) will start their days in Baikonur via Zenit and Kosmos/Tysklon (proposed option) pads respectively.

Construction of the second stage of the East
       
At Vostochny Cosmodrome, the construction of its second stage is in full swing. Specialists of the Kazan Production and Construction Association are reinforcing the foundation of structures located at the site of the launch complex for the Angara launch vehicles.

Building 4 (centralized construction) is designed to accommodate equipment of various technological systems developed by the branch of TsENKI - Research Institute of Launch Complexes named after V.P. Barmin.

At the first stage of creating the second stage of the cosmodrome, a launch complex will be built. The construction work will allow him to carry out the first launch of the Angara launch vehicle in 2021.

Vladimir Putin chaired a meeting on the development of the Vostochny spaceport

***

Beginning of a meeting on the development of infrastructure of the Vostochny cosmodrome and promising missile systems

Vladimir Putin: Good afternoon, dear colleagues!

We, as agreed, will discuss today the development of the infrastructure of the Vostochny Cosmodrome - our most important, without exaggeration, nationwide state building, state building, as well as discuss some issues of developing promising missile systems.
In the global space services market, as you know, competition is growing. The number of countries implementing their own space programs is increasing.

In order to remain in the lead, including in the field of manned programs, Russia needs to consistently increase its competitive advantages, correctly use the existing scientific, technological, human potential, and also effectively solve the problems of further improving its own space infrastructure and creating a competitive industry of innovative space products and services.

Once again, I want to say that today an increasing number of countries are actively developing promising missile systems. This is the area where Russia, despite the technological and production problems, which, incidentally, all other space powers are facing, nevertheless, our country has always held strong, confident, leadership positions. In order not to waste but to preserve and increase them, it is important for us to offer technological solutions for really tomorrow and be one step ahead.

Among the priorities here is the creation of a new generation middle-class launch vehicle. The estimated start date for its flight tests is 2022. It is necessary for launching automatic spacecraft into low Earth orbit, and also as a key element in the creation of a superheavy class launch vehicle. This will be our next stage of work. We’ll talk more about a promising line of missile systems today.

Immediately I want to note the following: when creating technology, it is necessary to focus on ensuring its competitiveness - both in terms of technical characteristics and price. Moreover, this requirement applies not only to missile systems. On the whole, I ask you to pay attention to optimizing the cost of products manufactured by Roscosmos enterprises, and also to work out measures that in the future will reduce the cost of space systems and launches themselves, while ensuring absolute quality and, of course, absolute reliability. This is the number one priority for our entire space industry.

Now for the Vostochny spaceport. Today I am waiting for a detailed report on the stage at which the construction of its facilities is being carried out and how the planned work schedules are being implemented. Once again, I want to emphasize: the entire ground infrastructure under construction here must meet the most modern requirements and standards, ensure the launch of our promising missile systems.

Five launches have already been made from Vostochny Cosmodrome. Now the capacities of the East can and, I want to emphasize this, should be loaded in a more serious way. I know that Roscosmos has such plans for the next year, we just talked about this with the head of Roscosmos. I would also like to hear more about these plans today.

Of course, the work on the development of the cosmodrome is very serious, large, voluminous. I expect from you a more responsible and dynamic pace, a more responsible attitude to the organization of work. It is necessary to withstand all the scheduled dates, including the first flight using a superheavy class launch vehicle. The launch should take place, as we have already said about this, from the East in 2028.

Let us dwell separately on such an important topic as the social infrastructure around the cosmodrome. We have repeatedly said that the Vostochny spaceport and the city of Tsiolkovsky should be among the “growth points” of the Far East, and help strengthen the human resources of this region. I ask you to report today how housing issues for the space center employees are being resolved, what is being done to attract qualified personnel, including especially young people.

Let's move on to discuss all the issues that have been outlined. A word - to the head of Roskosmos Dmitry Olegovich Rogozin. You are welcome.

<...>

Dmitry Rogozin's working visit to Vostochny Cosmodrome

Today, November 5, 2019, Dmitry Rogozin, Director General of Roscosmos State Corporation, made a working visit to Vostochny Cosmodrome. During the visit, he familiarized himself with the construction of the launch complex for Angara launch vehicles, visited the metrological base of the Cosmodrome Technical Complex and inspected the construction site of residential buildings in the Zvezdny microdistrict of Tsiolkovsky.

Then Dmitry Rogozin and Director General of FSUE TsENKI Andrey Okhlopkov examined the clinic of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) and held a meeting on medical support for the residents of Tsiolkovsky with FMBA Director General Vladimir Uyba and Amur Region Deputy Governor for Social Affairs Olga Lysenko. Following the meeting, the parties signed a cooperation agreement between Roscosmos State Corporation and the Federal Medical and Biological Agency. Within the framework of this agreement, an agreement was reached on the construction of the second stage of FMBA medical institutions on the territory of Tsiolkovsky.

At the complex of water intake facilities No. 6, the General Director of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin launched technological equipment for commissioning “under load”. The complex is intended for domestic, drinking, and fire water supply of the housing stock and boiler house of Tsiolkovsky.

In early September, Rogozin told reporters that the first launch of the Angara from Vostochny was scheduled for August 2023.

"The deadline for [completion of construction] is extremely tight, this is the end of 2022 - the end of all work, the builders leaving the facilities and the beginning of autonomous tests at the second-stage facilities, after which there are comprehensive tests and the launch of the launch, which is scheduled for August-September 2023" - said Rogozin.

According to the head of Roscosmos, during the first launch it is planned to send the manned spacecraft Eagle into orbit in unmanned mode.
