Hello,

I am running a proxmox cluster (8.0.2) with ceph (quincy). For HA capabilities I want run watchdog on the nodes (softdog). When I try to install the watchdog service on a node I' getting messages about uninstalling pve etc. That's not what i want. Updateing and upgrading the node is fiune without problems.

See below:

Not sure why this is, but it seems I cannot install and use watchdog until this is resolved.
