    So our parallels tools no longer installs on current debian 11 (buster).
    The missing linux-header package version can be fixed though and here is how:

    After mounting the installation disk via the paralles menu in the vm run:

    Code:
    mount /dev/cdrom
    mkdir -p /tmp/cdrom
    cp -R /media/cdrom/* /tmp/cdrom/
    cd /tmp/cdrom/
    
    wget 'https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20211001T101807Z/pool/main/l/linux/linux-headers-5.10.0-9-common_5.10.70-1_all.deb'
    wget 'https://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20211001T101807Z/pool/main/l/linux/linux-headers-5.10.0-9-amd64_5.10.70-1_amd64.deb'
    
    dpkg -i linux-headers-5.10.0-9-common_5.10.70-1_all.deb
    dpkg -i linux-headers-5.10.0-9-amd64_5.10.70-1_amd64.deb
    
    ./install
    The snaphost archives luckily contains the right version and it is possible to install. Depending on any conflicts or previous installs of that packages your mileage may vary.
