Seems both servers were on 5.3-8, thanks for the hint.

Maybe it would be helpful if you can publish some release notes for each 
package push made to pve-enterprise/pve-non-subscription (maybe 
capturing changed package's changelog?), so that this kind of (maybe 
corner but) grave problems are better communicated when the fix isn't 
first released on a point release.

Thanks a lot
