You know that’s the third time in the last 6 months that apt-get upgrade breaks whonix… and you won’t be able to blame this on us users.
I did did reinstall a clean Whonix 7 today and tried from scratch.
When doing a sudo apt-get update, you get the NO_PUBKEY Error message.
When doing a sudo apt-get upgrade from this state, you indeed get a warning of packages which are not authenticable. However You cannot update the System at all in this state. After saying no to install these, it gets a
E: some packages could not be authenticated
So I did install the PUBKEY CB8D50BB77BB3C46
That was already necessary since months, that was the last time Whonix broke the system.
After that no warning is coming anymore and it goes straight to install Whonix 8 over it.
This sucks big time.
This will be now so much fun to move 500GB from this broken OS to a new Whonix 8…
Seriously are we supposed to not use apt-get update anymore? Is whonix that unstable?
Everytime I fear that something breaks and I need to use hours to fix the broken installation.
While you emphasize the ease of use with the GUI you are breaking usability on a much lower level.
Please make sure that in the future there is a clean update path. A warning somewhere hidden in the wiki is not enough.
