    So my web-gui was not allowing me to login as root or any of the other users. I ssh into my PVE and I could login just fine with root and my other user accounts. Found another thread around this forum that suggested removing the pve-manager and re-installing it. I successfully removed the pve-manager, however now everytime I run apt-get install pve-manager it says it could not find the package, so I run apt-get update and I'm simply left with the following failure:

    Code:
    Err https://enterprise.proxmox.com jessie/pve-enterprise amd64 Packages
      HttpError401
    Get:17 https://enterprise.proxmox.com jessie/pve-enterprise Translation-en_US [4                                                    01 B]
    Ign https://enterprise.proxmox.com jessie/pve-enterprise Translation-en_US
    Get:18 https://enterprise.proxmox.com jessie/pve-enterprise Translation-en [401                                                     B]
    Ign https://enterprise.proxmox.com jessie/pve-enterprise Translation-en
    W: Failed to fetch https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian/dists/jessie/pve-enterp                                                    rise/binary-amd64/Packages  HttpError401
    
    Any ideas? Is there a package I can wget and just run deb-pkg on?

    My apt source list looks perfectly fine, before you tell me to check it, here it is:

    Code:
    root@pve:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib
    
    # security updates
    deb http://security.debian.org jessie/updates main contrib
    Code:
    root@pve:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list
    deb https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian jessie pve-enterprise
    Currently running PVE 4.4.6-1

    Everytime I install Proxmox I have nothing but misfortune. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Well now I feel stupid. I had read that wiki page, however the first time around I did not see the non-subscription based source list. Sorry and thanks for the wake-up slap. That did the trick.

    If anyone is wondering, running the following commands fixed my inability to login via the web-gui.

    1. apt-get upgrade
    2. apt-get dist-upgrade
    3. apt-get remove pve-manager
    4. Changed root password --> passwd root
    5. updated /etc/apt/sources.list repository with the following lines:
    6. apt-get update
    7. apt-get install pve-manager
    8. service pve-manager start

    Worked after that, and i was able to successfully login to the GUI.
