Hello to everyone,
I am at my first experience with Proxmox and virtualization.
I would like to know if it's possible to update the free version to the last release without having a valid subscription
Thank you

Yes it is, but sadly it requires manual interaction.

You have to remove the enterprise respository.
Then you have to add the no-subscription respository.

Execute the following to upgrade your system:
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list
echo "deb buster pve-no-subscription" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-no-subscription.list
apt update
apt full-upgrade
