Hello, I have the same problem

curl -k -H 'Authorization: PVEAPIToken=root@pam!user=key'

curl: (56) OpenSSL SSL_read: error:0A000126:SSL routines::unexpected eof while reading, errno 0

I did that because I'm trying to create VM with Ansible

ansible-playbook -i inventory/inventory.ini playbooks/create_and_setup_ssh_vm.yml --ask-vault-pass -e "next_vmid=334"
Vault password:

Ok, solution found.

I had to go to Permissions, to give to the new user and then to give also to the API token.
