i've got a small problem after an upgrade/update. I used to do a apt autoremove after kernel upgrade, but it seems it loops at this stage here:

root@pbs:~# apt autoremove

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

seems like your current setup is not fine. Did you run apt dist-upgrade as required to upgrade Proxmox VE. Might it be that you are missing the proxmox-kernel-helper package, which contains the proxmox-boot-tool binary?
