I installed PMG using PVE's stock template, pmgversion reports: lvm2: not correctly installed

Should I be concerned, all seems well on the PVE side of the house.

root@stl-mx:~# pmgversion -v
proxmox-mailgateway-container: 6.0-1 (API: 6.0-6/b0c1ded4, running kernel: 5.0.21-2-pve)
pmg-api: 6.0-6
pmg-gui: 2.0-4
libarchive-perl: 3.3.3-1
libjs-extjs: 6.0.1-10
libjs-framework7: 4.4.7-1
libpve-apiclient-perl: 3.0-2
libpve-common-perl: 6.0-4
libpve-http-server-perl: 3.0-2
libxdgmime-perl: 0.01-5

proxmox-spamassassin: 3.4.2-12
proxmox-widget-toolkit: 2.0-7
pve-xtermjs: 3.13.2-1

root@stl-eno1:~# pveversion -v | grep "proxmox\|lvm"
proxmox-ve: 6.0-2 (running kernel: 5.0.21-2-pve)
lvm2: 2.03.02-pve3
proxmox-mini-journalreader: 1.1-1
proxmox-widget-toolkit: 2.0-7

BTW: apt-get update -y ; apt-get dist-upgrade -y reports "Could not connect to (, connection timed out"
I am guessing this is an intermittent issue that will clear itself.
