Outdated: Installed whonix-workstation-packages-dependencies 3.4.2-1 is outdated!


I cannot seem to fix this issue, the output I get when I try to upgrade is:

Do I need to upgrade Whonix 10 to Whonix 11?


Hi Capitalmind

Whonix 14 is the stable version. All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade from Whonix 13 (version you are currently using) to 14.

Download new Whonix images (recomended): https://whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_13_to_Whonix_14#Download_New_Templates

Upgrade in place: https://whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_13_to_Whonix_14#Upgrading

Note: Since Whonix 14 is now the stable version of Whonix, support requests for Whonix 13 will be taken only for a little while longer.


I realised I’d saved all my bookmarks and files separately and was easier just to download the latest and run those. Super easy process, and much improved distro! Had no idea, I’ve just been doing update && upgrade for months and suddenly there’s a new system! Great stuff. Off to donate.


Hello! Did you get rid of the problem after installing Whonix 14?
I have a similar problem in Gateway and Workstation. The time on both machines cannot be synchronized. (((


Same problem here. Both on the Gateway and Workstation.


This was already answered in the second post in this thread.

It’s an upgrade notification. After upgrading to Whonix 14 this is certainly gone.
