pve-manager not updating


Feb 22, 2022
Hello when I run apt upgrade i get the following:
dpkg: error processing package pve-manager (--configure):
installed pve-manager package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I Have tried dpkg --configure -a but no luck
apt upgrade
you should always use apt dist-upgrade to upgrade Proxmox VE and other Proxmox products.

post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
There seems to be an issue with the post-installation script failing. Please provide the output of dpkg -D2 --configure pve-manager
after a reboot it seems to have solved itself
Glad it is solved, please mark the thread as such. For others which might stumble across this thread in search for a solution, there seemed to have been an issue preventing the pvedaemon service from reloading. The underlying cause however is not clear from the output, a systemctl status pvedaemon.service and the content of the systemd journal might give more clues.
