Updating to VE 8 made my system not boot up

I got 5 nodes and all seems to be unresponsive and stuck after updating. I can get into the recovery mode but that's about it. Only difference in my setup compared to a vanilla setup is that I have mellanox cards installed and running a ring network. Even after removing the card and the drivers. System still refusing to start. I attached the journal here and only thing that could be a potential problem is ```failed to open /run/network/ifstate``` otherwise Idk what's going on.

this is whats on the terminal

I really would like to at lest get my node with truenas working and I did copy out the /var/pve-cluster/config.db however having hard time copying the lv containing the virtual disks. Any help in that department would be nice as well. I have the primary disk attached to a ubuntu based system

What are you using as a boot-device hw-wise?
I'm using a nvme SSD.... And didnt change it or add one more . It was working like a charm. It just stop working after a controlled shutdown...

Things I tried:
In recovery mode: network interfaces OK
Tweak grub: intel_iommu and amd_iommu NOT WORKING
Disconnect all USB NOT WORKING
Memory test OK

Please, do you know if there is there any way of reinstall a previous version of proxmox withouth lost all my VM and lxc?

from you journal log
rya-PVE NetworkManager[2490]: <info>  [1687482137.1095] manager: (eth0): new Ethernet device (/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/8)

proxmox don't use networkmanager to manage network. (it's use ifupdown2 by default)
do you have installed it manually ? (or as I'm seeing some mellanox virtualnic, do you have installed specific mellanox tools ? maybe they have installed network manager ?)
