safe-upgrade
Upgrades installed packages to their most recent version. Installed packages will not be removed unless they are unused (see the section
"Managing Automatically Installed Packages" in the aptitude reference manual). Packages which are not currently installed may be installed to
resolve dependencies unless the --no-new-installs command-line option is supplied.

It is sometimes necessary to remove one package in order to upgrade another; this command is not able to upgrade packages in such situations. Use
the full-upgrade command to upgrade as many packages as possible.

What is the difference between the normal and safe-upgrade ?
How is Debian proceed then ? So what if you only need security updates ? What is the best to go ? Then aptitude safe-upgrade ? Some files will be skipped in the safe upgrade ?

Gues this is the answer: http://http://pthree.org/2007/09/24/...-safe-upgrade/

Aptitude Full-Upgrade Versus Safe-Upgrade:

aptitude safe-upgrade will not upgrade packages if:

relied dependencies have not been updated to the required version.
installing the upgrade means removing dependencies that other packages need.

aptitude full-upgrade will update packages unless:
the upgrade removes dependencies that other packages need

Befor you do this better also backup your VM's to the ftp backup you get from OVH. Just incase Just always be carefull a backup can save you a lot of troubles. I am to long in the ICT to know this ppfff ..Back-up back-up ...if not Murphy's law will hit you one day and then aarrrgg.

Damn yeah we gotta be carefull here. But i always backup my Vm's ppff. So better always back it up. I fixed the problem now by reinstalling PM again and then download the new KVM upgrade. Like this:
make a shh to your PM box and then:
1. wget ftp://pve.proxmox.com/debian/dists/l...86-3_amd64.deb
2. dpkg -i pve-kvm_86-3_amd64.deb

Then it will update the KVM module and all works again ppff:

dpkg -i pve-kvm_86-3_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 31040 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace pve-kvm 86-1 (using pve-kvm_86-3_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement pve-kvm ...
Setting up pve-kvm (86-3) ...
Processing triggers for man-db .



Ovh Engineers better slipstream this update already in the "new" Proxmox build if not a lot of users will run into those problems when they reinstall to V 1.3. And this will have a extra load on the support desk

Umm since i'm ordering a proxmox server in a little bit here. Can you install x64 OSs then if you run the upgrade?

Just update my system with 'apt-get'.

# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade
This did work. I think after apt -get upgrade some stuff is messing up the system after reinstall OS twice problem:

Thnx for the reply. Its a bestOff server x64 machine. Because i needed to get my vm's running asap i did rent a second bestoff. And i think i will keep those two for redundancy. Proxmox will migrate servers easy. Last time support took more then a week to fix the problem. So for the time being all Vms x64 run at the second bestOff server x64 machine. At this moment i reinstall the problem server and see if it no accepts x64 machines. Befor it did. If problem is still there i let the support know.

Problems still there after reinstall:



Server is x64 its a best off. Gues i have to contact support good i have a second bestoff...
