Hey !
I want to upgrade my proxmox 7.4 to 8, i read the wiki (https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Upgrade_from_7_to_8) and follow all steps, all is ok until the last upgrade
After changing the repo to bookworm, debian want to uninstall proxmox

W: (pve-apt-hook) !! WARNING !!

W: (pve-apt-hook)
W: (pve-apt-hook) If you really want to permanently remove 'proxmox-ve' from your system, run the following command
