How to solve the problem so as not to get into iRMC / LiLO after losing the server:

1. use tmux/screen so as not to break the update.
2. apt update && apt upgrade -y && systemctl restart networking.service
 
Same on my side. Happened to me as well. Upgraded via GUI / VNC web console, last messages seen are:

Setting up openvswitch-switch (2.15.0+ds1-2+deb11u1) ...
ovs-vswitchd.service is a disabled or a static unit not running, not starting it.

After those, lost network connectivity.
 
Confirm

update from
Code:
# pveversion 
pve-manager/7.1-10/6ddebafe (running kernel: 5.13.19-6-pve)

to
Code:
# pveversion 
pve-manager/7.1-12/b3c09de3 (running kernel: 5.13.19-6-pve)

after this message:
Code:
ovs-vswitchd.service is a disabled or a static unit not running, not starting it.
network is disable

after this command:
Code:
# systemctl restart networking.service
network restored
