Hi Proxmox Team,

On debian bookworm with all updates I cannot install Proxmox 8, there is a problem with the dependency libgnutls30 = 3.7.9-2
How to solve this dependency problem ?


Here is my log:

Why do you have sid on line 4? Sid is the "unstable" repository where development takes place. Mixing that with any stable release is a sure way to shoot your feet.

Likely problem is that you have installed something from that sid repository and it brought in a version of TLS that is newer than what other apps require. This is the tip of the iceberg of why you should never mix Debian distributions. It is also not generally a good idea to install Docker directly on the host OS so you might want to get rid of that too.

You will need to figure out what it is that you installed and remove it, then remove sid from your /etc/apt/sources.list. Or follow the recommended path and install a _clean_ Debian before installing PVE.
 
I removed the SID repo and have more conflicts, all packages have been rolled back to the stable version

I don't know man. For some reason your grep for sid shows libnfsidmap1 as "now" rather than "stable/now" which is weird and I don't know how you would get it into that state. Wonder how many others there are? That could be the cause of the uninstallable packages.

Sounds like you've done some experimenting with mixing Debian releases against all advice to the contrary. You are probably either going to have to completely reinstall or track down each package that has an unexpected version and force reinstall them. Bummer.

ETA: Now that I think about it, the "now" thing might have been caused by installing from Sid. Then you removed Sid from your repository list but didn't quite get all of the packages reverted. So now apt knows that package is installed but doesn't know where it came from. Like I said, reinstall or manually hunt down and revert.

I have added this repo, the number of missing dependencies has been reduced.
I checked the local packages and they all have local status,

It was debian 8 updated to 9, 10, 11 and now to 12, I think something was messed up by these updates, I guess the only thing left is to reinstall the system.

Code:
root@cs# apt upgrade

Never use only: apt upgrade with Proxmox products! Ever use: apt full-upgrade. Even in your current state.
But that only as a sidenote...

I checked the local packages and they all have local status,
Code:
apt/now 2.7.6 amd64 [installed,local]
dpkg/now 1.22.1 amd64 [installed,local]
fdisk/now 2.39.2-6 amd64 [installed,local]

I checked three of them and those (versions) (and most likely all others too) are from Debian sid:

It was debian 8 updated to 9, 10, 11 and now to 12, I think something was messed up by these updates, I guess the only thing left is to reinstall the system.

Would highly recommend so, yes.
 
Thank you gentlemen for the hints, I put up a fresh system and Proxmox installed correctly.
