Pacific is only available on Proxmox VE 7 AFAIR. So upgrade you cluster first. 6.4 is EOL since about a year now.
Hello, I do not want to change to version 7, since the version I had worked separately, I have the other pves in production and I do not want it to be affected by the change in version, since I do not handle proxmox very well, I do not want it to happen to it something wrong, I'll check the installation guide again https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Ceph_Nautilus_to_Octopus.

If I don't have a solution, I'll write again.
Wait, I just realized, that the GUI wanted to install Ceph Pacific? Are you running mixed major versions in your cluster? For example, Proxmox VE 7 and 6 nodes?
Parece que está intentando instalar paquetes de Ceph Octopus (15) en un sistema donde está instalado Ceph Nautilus (14).

¿Has seguido la guía para actualizar de Nautilus a Octopus en PVE 6? https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Ceph_Nautilus_to_Octopus

¿Tal vez las fuentes del paquete no se han adaptado en este nodo?
Un detalle que no se había informado es el siguiente:

root@pve2:~# ceph -v
ceph version 15.2.17 (694d03a6f6c6e9f814446223549caf9a9f60dba0) pulpo (estable)

Ya tengo la versión octopus, pero no me funciona.
Espera, me acabo de dar cuenta, que la GUI quería instalar Ceph Pacific? ¿Está ejecutando versiones principales mixtas en su clúster? Por ejemplo, ¿nodos Proxmox VE 7 y 6?
Si tengo 2 clústeres con la versión 6 y 2 clústeres con la versión 7, todo funcionaba bien antes, pero de repente todo dejó de funcionar.
Antes todo funcionaba perfectamente para mí, solo quería actualizar el pv2 porque aparecía en la configuración como desconocido, cuando lo desinstalé y lo reinstalé, aparecieron los siguientes errores.

When I do a systemctl it tells me that all the services are disabled, I enable them and they are not enabled.
