proxmox : fix updates

I love proxmox, its cool it works and its very user friendly. The only pain point is, they try to sell their  subscription really hard. In such an attempt they even change the default update location to something that will throw an error when not having a subscription!

Err jessie/pve-enterprise amd64 Packages

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Changing them is easy enough :

nano /etc/apt/sources.list


note : this is for wheezy

# pve updates
deb wheezy pve-no-subscription

For jessie :

deb jessie pve-no-subscription

Also remove this one :

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

If you now run a  apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade no errors should be there ! (dist-upgrade !)


Note : There is also a official wiki, where one can see the same changes : proxmox wiki
