Ending a sentence with a preposition is not a rule, though many people believe it is. I suspect that the software flags it so that you can make sure it is appropriate.  In this case, "carry on" is a verbal phrase and perfectly acceptable at the end of the sentence.


However, the rest of your sentence is full of problems.


Though you can sometimes infer the subject of a sentence, this is not one of those times.  You need to start the sentence with the subject:  I hope, We hope, She hopes.


These is the plural form of this.  Information is an uncountable noun and treated as singular.  It should be this information.


You are missing a verb after information.  Depending on what you want to say, I would suggest: is, was, or will be


You end the sentence with a question mark, but you are not asking a question.  End the sentence with a period, or change the wording to form a question. 


I hope this information is good enough to carry on.

Is this information good enough to carry on?
