Greetings, I've been attempting to install proxmox onto my server for a bit now and every time I try to download the needed software it comes up with an error
Code:
apt install proxmox-ve ntp ssh postfix ksm-control-daemon open-iscsi

This is what happens after I run that command

Code:
root@dellper610:~# apt-get install proxmox-ve ntp ssh postfix ksm-control-daemon open-iscsi systemd-sysv

I've looked over other threads and it hasn't helped me any and I went through all of the installation steps in the Wiki

Thanks.

The issue is PVE-firewall is not able to start / be configured causing other services to fail.

Is there anything in the logs directory or the status output of pve-firewall?

It's masked and inactive(dead) that's the only thing I can find and I haven't found a way to unmask the firewall
Code:
root@dellper610:~# service pve-firewall status
● pve-firewall.service
   Loaded: masked (/dev/null)
   Active: inactive (dead)
