Introduction

Proxmox VE is using APT as package management system. Updates can be installed via GUI or via CLI. Updating via GUI is introduced with Proxmox VE 3.1. For detailed update instructions see always Downloads.

The list of repositories is defined in /etc/apt/sources.list and or /etc/apt/sources.d/.

Beginning with Proxmox VE 3.1, the default and recommended repository is the Proxmox VE Enterprise Repository (pve-enterprise). To be qualified to access Proxmox VE Enterprise Repository, each of your Proxmox VE Servers need a valid Subscription Key. For more details about Proxmox VE Subscriptions, see http://www.proxmox.com/proxmox-ve/pricing

Uploading Subscription Keys, FAQs

Proxmox VE 4.x

Proxmox VE 4.x is based on Debian 8.x (Jessie).

Proxmox VE Enterprise Repository

This is the default, stable and recommended repository, available for all Proxmox VE Subscription users.

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

deb https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian jessie pve-enterprise

As soon as updates are available, the root@pam user is notified via email about the available new packages. On the GUI, the change-log of each package can be viewed (if available), showing all details of the update. You will never miss important security fixes.

This repo is only accessible over https and you need to have a valid Subscription Key on your host. This key is used for authentication.
