Hi,

I have installed proxmox ve with the following version numbers:

Kernel Version

Linux 5.0.21-1-pve #1 SMP PVE 5.0.21-1
PVE Manager Version

pve-manager/6.0-6/c71f879f

and when I try to apt update my debian I get the following error:

Code:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 pve-firmware : Conflicts: firmware-linux-free but 3.4 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

how can I resolve this?

thank you

hi,

can you post:

* pveversion -v
* your apt lists in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
* output of apt update

EDIT: quick explanation is, you have firmware-linux-free installed, which you shouldn't because pve provides it. that's why it conflicts. you can try removing it like apt remove firmware-linux-free

hi,

Err:8 https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian/pve buster InRelease 401 Unauthorized [IP: 212.224.123.70 443]
cat pve-enterprise.list
deb https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian/pve buster pve-enterprise

first of all, remove the enterprise repository (i guess you don't have a subscription so it won't work).

check the output of apt policy firmware-linux-free

if it is installed, try to remove it with apt remove firmware-linux-free
