[SOLVED] Node does not boot with Kernel 6.2.16-3

We updated our first node to ProxMox VE 8.0.
When we try to start the node, it just hangs at the line

"Loading Linux 6.2.16-3-pve"

After showing this line, it doesn't do anything anymore.
When we boot in the Linux Kernel 6.1.15-2.pve Kernel.
Then everything works fine.

Also the failed boot attemp did not show up in the log. (journalctl -k -b -1)

It seems like the update process didn't exit cleanly.
Because if we rerun the "apt dist-upgrade" command, the folowing output is showing up

I don't know where to start to get rid of this errors, because i don't know which bzuild area it tries to clean up:

What i also find strange, is that there are no "linux-header" packages for the kernel 6.2

Thank you very much !

apt remove kernel-mft-dkms did get rid of the errors.
Like in the user in the other thread, i installed the modul to update the firmware of my melanox cards.

I will test to restart the computer with the new Kernel tomorrow, when i am back at the production site.
