I have been using KVM for through the CLI for a while now, but the need arose for others to be able to easily manage the guests through a web GUI, so I am trying out Proxmox. Installing it and getting a VM to act as a template to clone from was a doddle, however I am concerned about just how “free” it is.
I understand it runs on top of Debian which is great because I love Debian, but when I update, I get the following message:
Reading package lists… Done
E: The repository ‘https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian/pve stretch Release’ does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
Also, when I log in, I get this message:
Can I continue to use proxmox as is and get just the essential security updates and not worry about it falling over or is there the likelihood that if I dont pay to get access to the enterprise repository that I might wake up one day with having lost access to all my VMs because some update didnt get applied?
