Upgrade 7->8 error


Jul 13, 2021
I have 2 proxmox servers, each running many VMs, decided to upgrade to 8. It all went well till very last packages in apt dist-upgrade process.

Basically, now when I run
apt autoremove
apt remove linux-image-amd64
apt purge linux-image-*
apt install pve-headers

whatever I run, I get this:

Building module:
