I get the following error trying to restore a Container.

How can i get more information what the error is / how to solve it?

KVM restore is working, LXC fails, Verify finds no errors on backup

recovering backed-up configuration from 'pbs_pve165:backup/ct/16000186/2023-11-13T08:32:07Z'
restoring 'pbs_pve165:backup/ct/16000186/2023-11-13T08:32:07Z' now..

This is my log. I verify the backups on PBS and are OK.

I already did that, no problems.
I have created a new container, mounted the backup and manualy copied the files, but it is worrying that it does not show why the restore is not working
