I have Proxmox 7 with a debian container. However, when I try to run the following command on the Debian container, I get that error. How can I solve that?

Thank you.

To be able to access the hosts "/proc" and "/sys" folders you need to enable the "nesting" feature for the LXC. See the LXCs "options -> features" in the webUI.
