Proxmox free license update error and login popup

The problem:
apt-get dist-upgrade 
E: Failed to fetch 401 Unauthorized [IP: 443]
E: The repository ‘ buster InRelease’ is not signed.
N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

Quick fix:
cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ 
cp pve-enterprise.list pve-no-subscription.list 
nano pve-enterprise.list

Comment out the first line and save:
#deb buster pve-enterprise
nano pve-no-subscription.list

change deb buster pve-enterprise
to deb buster pve-no-subscription

Upgrade should work now.


EDIT: Found a nicer way to do it:
This script will not remove nagging popup with the newer versions of Proxmox, works up to 5.3.x version.

For a newer versions use this command:
 sed -i.bak "s/data.status !== 'Active'/false/g" /usr/share/javascript/proxmox-widget-toolkit/proxmoxlib.js && systemctl restart pveproxy.service

Make sure to clear your cookies and cache for this method to work.
