"Cloning" - nested Proxmox


Renowned Member
I was trying to clone new Standalone Proxmox installation on KVM by doing a backup to PBS server then restoring that backup as a new virtual machine.
Worked quite well.

Then I updated
and regenerated ssh keys with
ssh-keygen -A
After reboot I noticed that pve-manager wont start.

What did I miss?
nothing else ?
an incorrect apt upgrade?

edit: check journalctl -xe
