Since I don't have a subscription at the moment I had to do this first:


Make a copy of the pve-enterprise.list file


run: cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
run: cp pve-enterprise.list pve-no-subscription.list


run: nano pve-enterprise.list and comment the line using # at the beginning, save and exit (this is for reverting to enterprise in case you pay for a subscription)
run: nano pve-no-subscription.list

change the following
  • https --> http
  • enterprise --> download
  • pve-enterprise --> pve-no-subscription

It should look like this

deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve buster pve-no-subscription

Why do these packages need to be remove when you install 'ifupdown2':

ifenslave ifupdown libproxmox-acme-perl libpve-access-control libpve-cluster-api-perl libpve-cluster-perl libpve-common-perl libpve-guest-common-perl
libpve-http-server-perl libpve-storage-perl librados2-perl proxmox-ve pve-cluster pve-container pve-firewall pve-ha-manager pve-manager pve-xtermjs qemu-server


Aren't they required? makes me nervous to install this package...

I have exactly the same question.

I had previously added in the no-subscription repository, but that entry had mysteriously disappeared.

Adding it in again and running an apt-update, trying the ifupdown2 install (dry run) - it worked fine.

I have no idea how the deb entry got removed (the empty file was there) - a pve update did that perhaps?

ifenslave ifupdown gets both replaced by ifupdown2.

Thats normal and intended. The other packages shouldn't be removed. You have then something wrong if anything starting with pve-* will get removed if you try to install ifupdown2.

I get this on all my installs with 6.3. Out of the box...
Yes you will. You need to remove the enterprise add the no-subscription repositories (assuming you have no subscription).

Code:
sed -i 's/^\([^#].*\)/# \1/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list

echo "deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve buster pve-no-subscription" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-no-subscription.list

apt update && apt dist-upgrade -y && apt autoremove --purge -y

My error stemmed from the fact the repo list seemed to revert to default and I needed to do this again.
