Hey guys, the installation with the kernel fails because of my WireGuard Installation. What can be done to get around this issue?

Python:
Error! The /var/lib/dkms/wireguard/1.0.20210219/6.2.16-3-pve/x86_64/dkms.conf for module wireguard includes a BUILD_EXCLUSIVE directive which does not match this kernel/arch/config.

Here the full log where the kernel would be update:

Do you need to install Wireguard via DKMS? AFAIK it is part of the Linux kernel for a while now.
The wireguard-tools might need to be installed.

the solution for this will be to check the installed module with

Python:
dkms status
wireguard/1.0.20210219: added

after the right module is shown, remove it with this line

Python:
dkms remove wireguard/1.0.20210219
Thank you for sharing. I was on the right track just wasn't removing it. Thank you!!
