Problems installing Whonix Workstation

Hello guys. plz help me.
I setuped Whonix Gateway successfully by sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community qubes-template-whonix-gateway-experimental

Then I try to install Whonix Workstation in Qubes R2.
in dom0 terminal i input

  1. export UPDATES_MAX_BYTES=$[ 4 * 1024 ** 3 ]
    
  2. sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community qubes-template-whonix-workstation-gnome
    then, after about 40 min of downloading i get error: error downloading package, timeout, too slow speed last 100 sec.

Just sounds like a slow or flaky internet connection on your end.

How many times did you try and get this error?

Maybe try a different internet connection?

Nope. I have good connection… I tryed 3 times to install and every time i got this error. Maybe problem in command export UPDATES_MAX_BYTES=$[ 4 * 1024 ** 3 ] ??

Troubleshooting:

What is output with this command?

In Dom0 Terminal:

printenv | grep UPDATES

Also, what is your UpdateVM set to?

In Qubes VM Manager:

Qubes VM Manager --> System --> Global settings --> UpdateVM

I have seen caching issues with these installations.

Maybe try shutting down and restarting to clear any update cache.

Maybe try to download it directly?

Then you will need to copy it to dom0 and use yum to install it. Assuming you download the file in a VM named ‘web’ and the downloaded file is located in the users ‘Downloads’ directory, you can copy to dom0 as follows:

# In dom0 terminal session
cd /tmp
qvm-run --pass-io web 'cat Downloads/qubes-template-whonix-workstation-gnome-2.1.8-201503092029.noarch.rpm' > qubes-template-whonix-workstation-gnome-2.1.8-201503092029.noarch.rpm

yum install ./qubes-template-whonix-workstation-gnome-2.1.8-201503092029.noarch.rpm
