I did the upgrade path from 7 to 8 and saw a couple errors during the process but upon rebooting it started up fine, though when trying to do apt update / apt upgrade (or apt dist-upgrade) I get the following:

Is there an easy way to fix this?

Thanks!
 
The PVE kernel got its own headers. Try to install the "pve-headers" package: apt update && apt install pve-headers

It seems to keep looping back to 6.1.0-9:

I may need to look at getting a different SFP+ network card to replace my ConnectX-3 if support is dropped or it stops working.

I ended up just removing the headers to stop the errors

having a similar issue, should I not be removing the 6.1.0-9 headers?
