it’s the same result on the vm of whonix gateway …

consequently i get error when i try to update the os

i’m using virtualbox and i put the 2 vm ( workstation and the gateway) like internal networking

the adapter that i choose is PcNet-FAST III (Am79C973) ( should i change it?)

i disable the promiscuous mode too

what can i do ?

Don’t change any settings.

Delete the VMs. Reimport. Just leave as is. And you’ll be fine.
