[SOLVED] Proxmox 5.3 CephFS Metadata Server creation fails

I just upgraded to version 5.3 and tried to create multiple MDS for CephFS. However, an error occurs:
Binary not installed: /usr/bin/ceph-mds (500)

Is this intended? I cannot install it via apt. What is the issue here?
Glad you found the solution so fast :)
Please mark the thread as solved, so that all other early adopters know where to look for the solution ;)
