Whonixcheck GUI output, in Qubes-Whonix anon-whonix VM:
INFO: Whonix APT Repository: Enabled. When the Whonix team releases STRETCH updates, they will be AUTOMATICALLY installed (when you run apt-get dist-upgrade) along with updated packages from the Debian team. Please read https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Trust to understand the risk. If you want to change this, use: dom0 -> Start Menu -> Template: whonix-gw-14 -> Whonix Repository WARNING: Debian Package Update Check Result: Could not check for software updates! (apt-get code: 100) Please manually check inside your 'whonix-gw-14' TemplateVM. 1. Open a TemplateVM terminal. (dom0 -> Start Menu -> Template: whonix-gw-14 -> Terminal) 2. Update. sudo apt-get-update-plus dist-upgrade 3. Shutdown your TemplateVM. (dom0 -> Qubes VM Manager -> right click 'whonix-gw-14' -> Shutdown VM) 4. Shutdown and restart this TemplateBased ProxyVM. (dom0 -> Qubes VM Manager -> right click 'sys-whonix' -> Shutdown VM)
I did follow the instructions, here’s log output of “sudo apt-get-update-plus dist-upgrade” run on whonix-gw-14 terminal:
user@host:~$ sudo apt-get-update-plus dist-upgrade Hit:1 tor+http://deb.dds6qkxpwdeubwucdiaord2xgbbeyds25rbsgr73tbfpqpt4a6vjwsyd.onion stretch InRelease Hit:2 https://deb.whonix.org stretch InRelease Hit:4 https://deb.qubes-os.org/r4.0/vm stretch InRelease Hit:3 https://cdn-aws.deb.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates InRelease Ign:5 https://cdn-aws.deb.debian.org/debian stretch InRelease Hit:6 https://cdn-aws.deb.debian.org/debian stretch Release Reading package lists...

I then proceeded to restart everything. The Warning persists.
I’ve set during Qubes R4.0 installation to use Whonix to update Dom0, and if the option was present also the templateVMs (I don’t recall if it was present or not atm, but if it was, I definitely checked that box), regardless of that I’ve set all my template VMs to sys-whonix.
I also changed the “tor+http” links in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/whonix.list to just “http” (was afraid of tor over tor) since the netvm is set to sys-whonix already. As you can see in the log above I changed it back to “tor+http” to make sure this error isn’t my fault.
These are the modifications I did, I don’t think they are responsible for the Warning message.
How to fix it please? Any clue?
