First to update to Proxmox v8 you need to make sure everything is ready. You can do this using this command:
If you get no errors great! We now need to update the configured repositories in proxmox. This is because they have changed in the new v8 software. We can do this using the following commands:
Once done we need to run the command below to check that we are on version 7.4-15 or newer. If your not unfortunetly you cannot update this way and you will need to proceed to create a new installation. To check your current running version use this command:
Once this is done and you’ve made sure your running the compatible version with the update you need to add the new repos to proxmox using the following commands:
sed -i -e 's/bullseye/bookworm/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-install-repo.list
echo "deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian/ceph-quincy bookworm no-subscription" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ceph.list
Once you have updated the list of repositories to the new one you are now all set to fetch the new update using the following commands:
apt-get dist-upgrade -y
The process may take a while depending on your hardware performance such as CPU decompression speed, disk speed, memory speed and internet bandwidth. Once done we can simply run this command to reboot into Proxmox Version 8.0!
