Upgrading Proxmox Server

Preston Garrison 0 Comments

With the latest versions of Promox there is now two repositories. One is set up for paid subscriptions, and one is set up for unpaid subscriptions. Unfortunately by default the paid repository is enabled, so without a valid subscription you can no longer upgrade a server. So to upgrade a server you should do the following:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list


Now comment out the only line inside this file by putting a # in front of it.



Next you need to add the non enterprise repository:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list


you should make the file look like this:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib

# security updates
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib

deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian wheezy pve-no-subscription



Now you can update you machine like normal:

apt-get update
apt-get -y upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade
