A good start would be to fix up your network configuration, even if
you don't use that secondary network card.

You can edit:

you should have a line like this:
# PCI device 0x1969:0x1048 (atl1)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*",
ATTR{address}=="00:12:34:56:78:90", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0",
ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth5"

Change eth5 to eth1, delete any other definition than eth0.

Why 2 network cards on the same bridge for VM 106?

Another hint (but maybe I'm wrong): why you have both vmtab* and veth*
interfaces? Should'nt the first be renamed to the second after a
recent proxmox update? Have you ever rebooted the host?

Everything else looks fine to me, maybe you can try to configure
manually an IP inside the VM and try to ping the host or your default
