The problem is that if you are currently running Debian Stretch, you
don't have any (non-manual) way to enable access to the pve-enterprise
repository. Thus you first need to configure the pve-no-subscription
one, use that to install PVE, then add your subscription key and switch
to pve-enterprise.

It might make sense to put a hint at the end that switching to
pve-enterprise if you have a subscription is a good idea at that point
