[WARNING] [whonixcheck] Check nonfree Result: nonfree packages found. This is non-ideal but okay if you know what you are doing. For more information, see:

Can anyone tell me how to fix this error? (without disabling it) Wasn’t virtualbox opensource to begin with? This error came by after upgrading whonix (non-qubes).
Indeed, it was installed inside the whonix workstation. It shows up with regular “whonixcheck”. Should I remove all the packages? I do want to retain the guest additions in whonix but not sure if that is one of the packages listed. Please clarify this for me Patrick (VB whonix)
I received the same warning message as PrivacyF from whonixcheck on my whonix gateway, but then for vrms_output I get first a perl warning about setting locale failing, and then it says:
No non-free or contrib packages installed on host! rms would be proud.
I am running whonix on KVM and have never installed any packages except those recommend after doing a normal sudo update followed by sudo dist-upgrade, as recommended by whonixcheck.
I never got this warning until recent update of openssl and libssl a day or two ago. I do not receive the warning on my workstation. Do I or don’t I have non-free packages installed? Whonixcheck warns I do, vrms_output says I do not.
