A lot of package hash mismatches when trying to update new system

Whonix installed from Whonix-XFCE-16.0.5.3.ova

First run of Whonix Gateway

First system update

sudo apt dist-upgrade (after sudo apt update, which succeeds, see other topic about random segfaults) produces a lot of hash mismatch errors like:

E: Failed to fetch tor+https://deb.kicksecure.com/pool/non-free/v/virtualbox-guest-additions-iso/virtualbox-guest-additions-iso_6.1.38-1_all.deb Hash Sum mismatch

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

Probably same issue as here:

Windows 10 LTSC x64
VirtualBox 7.0.2
Whonix-XFCE-16.0.8.2
First run of Whonix Gateway and system update (no problem - updated and upgraded, systemcheck is done all green connected to tor)

Whonix-Workstation :
sudo apt update
10 packages can be upgraded. Run ‘apt list --upgradable’ to see them.
sudo apt upgrade
The following packages will be upgraded:
ffmpeg libavcodec58 libavdevice58 libavfilter7 libavformat58 libavresample4
libavutil56 libpostproc55 libswresample3 libswscale5
10 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 9.880 kB of archives.
After this operation, 10,2 kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
Abort.

This problem only with Whonix-Workstation, Gateway is ok (all updated and upgraded).
I reinstalled VB and Whonix but still have this problem with Workstation (any command in terminal for upgrade aborted).
