i have a problem with my TapeLibrary HP MSL6000 LTO4...

This error:
thanks for helping me out.
can you post your versions?

proxmox-backup-manager versions --verbose

also note that while we try to support LTO4, it is not always possible. you can also try to upgrade to the latest version of your library (if there exists any newer)

Here's my Output:

I understand that you can't support LTO4 best, but maybe this is a "simple" problem. Would be awesome if it works...
I will search for updates. // No Updates since 2007

proxmox-backup-server 2.0.4-1 running version: 2.0.4
is not the newest version, and there were some fixes for tape libraries. so i'd suggest updating to the current version
did you configure the correct repositories? check Adminstration -> Repositories
Ahh yes, i deactivated enterprise rep without activating non-subscription rep.
I will try it. Now i get updates.
