Nov 30 18:45:05 update sucessful

It seems okay to ignore the error:
update failed: unable to parse appliance record: unknown type 'lxc'

The OpenVZ images from TKL are at:
whilst the "proxmox" images are now LXC at:

The last archived OpenVZ listing (2015-08-01) is at:

The latest LXC TKL Templates are only available for amd64 and not for i386 whilst the earlier OpenVZ ones were available for both.

yes, pveam update shows an error on 3.x system, but as there are no updates anymore the current list is still up2date.

ALL new TKL appliances for LXC (Proxmox VE 4.x) are amd64 only (decision from TKL).
For those who want to manually update their /var/lib/pve-manager/apl-info/apl-available file with TKL OpenVZ template details, the last known set is attached here.
