> FAQ
> Q: Can I upgrade Proxmox VE 6.4 to 7.0 with apt?
> A: Please follow the upgrade instructions on 
> https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Upgrade_from_6.x_to_7.0
>
> Q: Can I upgrade a 7.0 beta installation to the stable 7.0 release via 
> apt?
> A: Yes.
>
> Q: Can I install Proxmox VE 7.0 on top of Debian 11 "Bullseye"?
> A: Yes, see 
> https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_Proxmox_VE_on_Debian_11_Bullseye
>
> Q: Why is Proxmox VE 7.0 released ahead of the stable Debian 11 release?
> A: The Debian project team postponed their plans for the May release 
> mainly due to an unresolved issue in the Debian installer. Since we 
> maintain our own Proxmox installer, we are not affected by this 
> particular issue, therefore we have decided to release earlier. The 
> core packages of Proxmox VE are either maintained by the Proxmox team 
> or are already subject to the very strict Debian freeze policy for 
> essential packages.
>
> Q: Can I upgrade my Proxmox VE 6.4 cluster with Ceph Octopus to 7.0 
> with Ceph Octopus or even Pacific?
> A: This is a two step process. First, you have to upgrade Proxmox VE 
> from 6.4 to 7.0, and afterwards upgrade Ceph from Octopus to Pacific. 
> There are a lot of improvements and changes, so please follow exactly 
> the upgrade documentation:
> https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Upgrade_from_6.x_to_7.0
> https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Ceph_Octopus_to_Pacific
>
> Q: Where can I get more information about feature updates?
> A: Check the roadmap, forum, the mailing list, and/or subscribe to our 
> newsletter.
