When you do this step do you make sure to get the new format
"bullseye-security/updates" line correct? Because without that, you
end up with linux-image-5.10.0-8-amd64 version 5.10.46-4, not version

It works for me on 14 different domUs at present, so I'd say not

The way you are booting these domains though inherently requires
synchronisation between the domU's config file in dom0 (that says
which kernel+initramfs to use) and the /lib/modules directory in the
domU. Easy to make a mistake.

So are you sure that you haven't mismatched something there?

Once you've got to the bottom of this I recommend switching to
pvhgrub booting to do away with that class of problems…

…and the domU in question has that same /lib/modules/5.10.0-8-amd64
directory tree from dom0?
