Yes I was able to install the template by enabling the templates-community-testing repo and then issuing this command: sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community qubes-template-whonix-gw-15 & sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community-testing qubes-template-whonix-ws-15
Note that the whonix wiki states to use the --action=upgrade or --action=reinstall argument which clearly failed to work in my case.
A bit confusing that R4.1 testers can’t install the template from the community repo which the whonix wiki insists on using.
I don’t know if we want to change anything i.e. since Qubes R4.1 will be stable soon enough?
Also, that reporter’s action to resolve it looks confusing i.e. enabling whonix-gw-15 from qubes-template-community, while whonix-ws-15 installed from qubes-templates-community-testing?
Why would ws and gw be available from different repos in that case? Weird.
2. Also, with Debian 11 released in two weeks (August 14), should there be some News announcement about upcoming Whonix 16? I know that you previously released Whonix 15 slightly before Debian 10 stable was released (from memory).
I don’t know anything other than the general public. No inside information. No news on that as far as I know.
Qubes-Whonix R4.1 plans generally:
That’s a Qubes issue. I don’t manage Qubes dom0 repositories.
Fedora upgrades (which Qubes dom0 is based on) and then on top of that the qubes-dom0-update is confusing. It might show “not available” while it actually means “installed and no other version found but let’s say not available”.

Reading package lists… Done
E: The repository ‘tor+https://deb.debian.org/debian-security bullseye/updates Release’ does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
I successfully installed the kicksecure-cli on debian 11 from the bullseye-repo together with sdwdate, bootclockrandomization, security-misc etc.
However when I try to install kloak or tirdad, I get:

The following NEW packages will be installed:

Need to get 54.2 kB of archives.
After this operation, 61.4 kB of additional disk space will be used.
I’m not in a hurry, so if these are not ready to be rolled out yet, I have every bit of patience, though when you said all packages are ported to Debian 11 and uploaded to the whonix-repo, it could also mean that there is some issue.
