I can’t use sshfs/veracrypt or other program that uses fuse library.

All of them got error

Error: fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first
# modprobe fuse
ERROR: could not insert 'fuse': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
fuse: Unknown symbol setattr_prepare (err 0)
# ls -lah /lib/modules

# uname -a

After then i has changed kernel via control panel to 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.81-1
But same error
