cgroup backend for pathOfController error

After installing Whonix-XFCE- the gateway starts as expected and runs flawlessly. Nevertheless, the Workstantion will not start with the following message:

Error starting domain: internal error: failed to get cgroup backend for 'pathOfController' (Full traceback bellow).
In the environment I have also installed Tails and Debian 11. They all work fine, so I guess this is an issue that has to do with Whonix Workstation only.

I have a vague idea about what cgroup is, but do not have any ideas on how to do anything about it.

Any hints will be much appreciated.

Late, but try this and see if the problem goes away:
