    After doing an `apt update` and then an `apt upgrade` my proxmox server no longer boots.
    Old kernel (which i can manually select and boot from) is 4.15.10-1.

    There is no subscription, so the updates were from pve-nosubscription.

    The hardware is a HP DL380p G8.

    This is easily reproducable for me, i just need to reboot and select the -5 kernel revision.

    Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. I know nosubscription is unsupported, but this seems like an unexpected breakage.

    Looks like it was a false report.

    After rebooting from the old kernel I tried removing the newer revision so the system wouldn't try booting from it again.

    Apt informed me that "E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.". Running that caused it to reinstall the kernel which it could then successfully boot from.

    It looks like my previous `apt upgrade` didn't work or didn't fully commit to disk - which is odd, because it was an `apt upgrade && sync && reboot` so it really should have flushed.

    Apologies for the false report, please ignore.

    Proxmox guys have written everywhere to never use apt upgrade with proxmox, but always use apt dist-upgrade.
    But I do think they should append this information to the /etc/motd file at install.
