Hi,
take a look to some file related with distribution version in original container and fix it before make backup and import in new platform. In our case the file were an absolut path link:

redhat-release -> /etc/system-release​

We changed to this:
rm redhat-release
ln -s system-release redhat-release​

I've got the same problem restoring a CentOS 6 openvz on a proxmox 4.4 (originating from proxmox 3.4).

TASK ERROR: unable to read version info

I tried Eladio Gálvez tip but I still get this error. How can I force restore ?
