for whatever reason the package manager is trying to install the
firmware-linux-free which is not needed by PVE

try to give a hint to the package manager that you want pve-firmware
and not firmware-linux-free by doing:

apt-get install proxmox-ve

then probably you will be asked if you to remove firmware-linux-free,
answer yes, and after that try the upgrade again.
