Hi, two month ago I’ve installed debian-10-turnkey-mediaserver_16.1-1_amd64.tar.gz in Proxmox 7.2-11. All was running fine up to may be 2 weeks ago when I saw that there was an update for Jellyfin, but I can not install/upgrade it.

Hi Aero. Welcome to TurnKey.

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm guessing that there is some additional dependency that it's not pulling in automatically for some reason?

So please try again, but this time explicitly install the dependency versions noted first. I.e.:

apt install -y jellyfin-server=10.8.7-1 jellyfin-web=10.8.7-1
apt install -y jellyfin

Hopefully that does the trick. If not, please post back with the output of the above commands.

That did it. Thanks a lot. I will remember the next time this might happen.

Awesome! Glad to hear you're up and running again...

The only thing that occurs to me is that perhaps this is being caused by our Jellyfin package pinning? When I get a chance, I'll have a closer look and if I find anything of interest, I'll try to remember to post back.
