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]

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.
