I have attempted to upgrade to the Proxmox server which I haven't used for a few months.
When launching the updates, these error messages appear:

Code:
100 upgraded, 7 newly installed, 4 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B/207 MB of archives.
After this operation, 54.5 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y

In Proxmox Updates, however, I see that there are always 66 packages to update.

The version currently reported is
Code:
Kernel Version Linux 5.13.19-4-pve #1 SMP PVE 5.13.19-9 (Mon, 07 Feb 2022 11:01:14 +0100)

you're attempting to install a package that conflicts with proxmox packages. depending on what that is, the solution could either be

- dont do that
- allow it to uninstall proxmox, and reinstall afterwards.

Please provide the full output in code-tags of:
  • apt update
  • apt full-upgrade
  • apt list --installed | grep linux-image

@spirit
It is configured with the non-subscription repository, but this has always been the case.

@alexskysilk
The upgrade I'm doing it directly from the GUI, as I've always done.
So I'm not trying to install some other package.

@Neobin
I'll do it later.

For the moment I thank everyone
