Proxmox 6 / LXC / Clone issue?

I am running the latest Proxmox 6, and using LXC. I am using a local disk mount directory, and when i try to clone to it getting strange messages:

mount: /var/lib/lxc/161/.copy-volume-2: cannot mount /dev/loop45 read-only.
Specified filename /var/lib/lxc/161/.copy-volume-1 does not exist.
TASK ERROR: clone failed: command 'mount -o ro /dev/loop45 /var/lib/lxc/161/.copy-volume-2//' failed: exit code 32

Any ideas on this?

can you show your lxc config? (`pct config CTID`)
root@pve01:~# pct config 1111
arch: amd64
cores: 2
hostname: template-to-use
memory: 8192
net0: name=eth0,bridge=vmbr0,gw=,hwaddr=1A:6C:75:D1:7C:21,ip=,type=veth
onboot: 1
ostype: centos
rootfs: pve01-datastorage:1111/vm-1111-disk-0.raw,size=10G
swap: 512
config looks ok.

what kind is the pve01-datastorage?
Ok strange, just rebooting the server made it happy... so not sure what state it was in before, but seems to be Ok now.
that's interesting.

did you do a reboot after upgrading or is this your first reboot after the upgrade?
