Any debug / verbose options ?

What Hestia version are you running?

v-update-sys-hestia is actually a wrapper to these cli cmds, you could try to run them manually

apt update
apt install hestia
apt install hestia-nginx
apt install hestia-php

It seems that the issue was caused by atop (i’m running inside a LXC container and atop wasn’t able to get pid)

I’ve uninstalled atop and now there are no errors while updating the packages.

Is atop used for some metrics collections by hestia ?
