Hi all. Newb here. Something is amiss on my Proxmox 8.0.4. I have lost the Templates menu entry. It is not present at all. I can look at templates on the command line.
I tried to install one.
# pveam download local debian-11-turnkey-fileserver_17.1-1_amd64.tar.gz
storage 'local' does not support templates

Templates are available
# pveam available
mail proxmox-mailgateway-7.3-standard_7.3-1_amd64.tar.zst
mail proxmox-mailgateway-8.0-standard_8.0-1_amd64.tar.zst
system almalinux-9-default_20221108_amd64.tar.xz
system alpine-3.18-default_20230607_amd64.tar.xz

Other things tried are restarting Proxmox and Clearing the cache on this browser.
Any ideas on what has happened? How can I restore it ?

can you please post the output of pveversion -v and cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg?
Did you recently change anything, mess with configs or such?

The CT Templates section is also not shown when Container template is not enabled under Datacenter > Storage > local > Content. Use the pull-down menu to check whether Container template is selected (for local storage).
This is now resolved. This window only showed ISO "Content". Using the drop down menu I was able to add the "Container template". Templates are now showing in the Storage menu area. Many thanks.Proxmox-Templates-Issue.png

Great to hear this solved it!

Please just mark the thread as solved by editing the first post - there should be a dropdown near
the title field. This helps other people with the same problem to more easily find this thread in
the future! :)
