No Internet on all VMs after update

Yesterday after I updated and rebooted my Server all of my 3 VMs weren't able to connect back to the Internet.
I use a routed setup basically exactly like this https://community.hetzner.com/tutorials/install-and-configure-proxmox_ve/de?title=Proxmox_VE

After some digging I figured out that the Gateway (proxmox host) is still pingable from inside of the VMs.
Pinging the VMs from proxmox failed and also "ping 1.1.1.1 -I vmbr0" fails, Im not sure if this should work though.

Tcpdump on proxmox showed some incoming connections from the VMs but I couldn't get anything special from that.
So i figured it has to be a problem with my proxmox networking but I have no idea what is happening since I haven't changed anything and it still looks correct to me.

Proxmox Network:
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface lo inet6 loopback

auto enp0s31f6
iface enp0s31f6 inet manual
        address  [ProxmoxIP]
        netmask  255.255.255.255
        gateway  [Gateway of ProxmoxIP]
        pointopoint [Gateway of ProxmoxIP]

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
        address  [ProxmoxIP]
        netmask  255.255.255.255
        bridge-ports none
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0
        up ip route add [ExtraIP1]/32 dev vmbr0
        up ip route add [ExtraIP2]/32 dev vmbr0

#intern
auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet static
        address  10.10.10.1
        netmask  24
        bridge-ports none
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

Thanks for your time!

Confirmed same issue here, Anything internal is not working. I'm running a mesh network with OVS for my layer3. No web access while my vmbr0 was configured for ovs, had to switch it back to a standard bridge, but still my internal network is borked.

do you use ifupdown2 2.0 ? (dpkg -l|grep ifupdown2?)
if yes, they are a regression with ovs, it should be fixed with
http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve/dists/buster/pvetest/binary-amd64/ifupdown2_2.0.1-1+pve4_all.deb

Same Problem here, with 2.0.1-1+pve4.
I went back to ifupdown2=1.2.8-1+pve4 and all VM are working fine....

Sure.

I dont use openvswitch.

iface lo inet6 loopback

auto enp4s0
iface enp4s0 inet static
    address  [HostIP]
    netmask  255.255.255.224
    gateway  [Gateway]
    pointopoint [Gateway]
    up route add -net 78.46.X.X netmask 255.255.255.224 gw [Gateway] dev enp4s0


iface enp4s0 inet6 static
    address  [IPv6]
    netmask  128
    gateway  fe80::1
    up sysctl -p

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
    address   [HostIP]
    netmask  255.255.255.255
    bridge-ports none
    bridge-stp off
    bridge-fd 0
    bridge_maxwait 0
    up ip route add [Additional IP for VM] dev vmbr0

@Miki84

just curious, why do you call "sysctl -p" in up ?
could you send the result of "ifup -a -d" ?

I wonder if it could be forwarding be disabled by ifupdown2.
can you try to add "ip-forward on' on ipv4 interfaces, and "ip6-forward on" on ipv6 interfaces ?

I installed Proxmox via the Hetzner installer.
the sysctl -p call comes from the installer.
no idea why

The result of ifup -a -d with the working
ifupdown2 1.2.8-1+pve4 version?

Or with the 2.0 version that didnt work?

ok no problem. I didn't known that hetzner was setting up default configuration.

maybe both version if you can.

I have found a bug with pointopoint in both versions. (mainly, when you ifdown the interface, it's not removing the ip address)
but maybe with 2.0 it's worste than before.

I have make a patch and build a fixed deb:
http://odisoweb1.odiso.net/ifupdown2_2.0.1-1+pve4_all.deb
if you can test, it could be great :) (I don't have hetzner server to test)

I have send a pull request to ifupdown2 github too:
https://github.com/CumulusNetworks/ifupdown2/pull/149/

Same Problem
apt-get install ifenslave
( this removed ifupdown2 )
and then works again ...

dpkg -l|grep ifupdown2
rc ifupdown2 2.0.1-1+pve4 all Network Interface Management tool similar to ifupdown
