BTW, I'm still new to this stuff. Worked with some RPIs and a little kali Linux, prepare for a newbie :D

Here is my Problem:

All Linux Containers are running Ubuntu Server LTS 14.04

I updated and upgraded everything. I tried update, upgrade, dist-upgrade and safe-upgrade.
In some article, i saw this kernel version i should be having: Linux pve 4.13.13-4-pve

$ uname -a gives me this:
Linux pve 4.13.13-2-pve #1 SMP PVE 4.13.13-32 (Thu, 21 Dec 2017 09:02:14 +0100) x86_64 GNU/Linux

$ pveversion gave me this:
pve-manager/5.1-41/0b958203 (running kernel: 4.13.13-2-pve)

The package versions are these:

proxmox-ve: 5.1-32 (running kernel: 4.13.13-2-pve)
pve-manager: 5.1-41 (running version: 5.1-41/0b958203)
pve-kernel-4.13.13-2-pve: 4.13.13-32
libpve-http-server-perl: 2.0-8
lvm2: 2.02.168-pve6
corosync: 2.4.2-pve3
libqb0: 1.0.1-1
pve-cluster: 5.0-19
qemu-server: 5.0-18
pve-firmware: 2.0-3
libpve-common-perl: 5.0-25
libpve-guest-common-perl: 2.0-14
libpve-access-control: 5.0-7
libpve-storage-perl: 5.0-17

lxc-pve: 2.1.1-2
lxcfs: 2.0.8-1
criu: 2.11.1-1~bpo90
novnc-pve: 0.6-4
smartmontools: 6.5+svn4324-1
zfsutils-linux: 0.7.3-pve1~bpo9

So yesterday I did an update on all the containers, restarted the pve Server, upgraded the pve environment, restarted the Server again and then the containers just won't boot anymore. The error is this:

Error: command 'systemctl start pve-container@101' failed: exit code 1.

Also, I noticed that on the Latest Version of Firefox PVEs Web UI doesn't work. You can't click anything.

German and English are Welcome to me, Wrote this on the English site, so I didn't want to Write everything again.

Thanks in advance for your help.
