Hello, I upgrade from 5.x to 6.x with no errors. After a reboot of my server, I am unable to connect to the portal.

I am able to ssh in to my server and in doing so, here is what I got.

Before I did upgrade, I noticed that it did tell me to remove pve-manager, it would not go any further until I did this. Am I missing something? Thank you.
That's probably it.
