Problems on gateway after upgrading from whonix8.2 to whonix9

Couple of things:

1.) whonixcheck fails to run.
–> whonixcheck: Error detected. Cleaning up… Exiting
–> whonixcheck: signal ERR received. Cleaning up… Exiting

2.) when I run ‘sudo apt-get dist-upgrade’ i get
–> WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
–> tor-geoipdb tor python-pyptlib

  • I’ve tried new circuits from arm but the problem persists

Other than this, it seems I have successfully updated to Whonix 9 on both the Gateway and Workstation.

Does this https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Upgrading_Whonix_8_to_Whonix_9#Known_Issues help?

    Perhaps you haven’t had a chance to get The Projects Updates signing key while they could still sign their repository with that key. Please try this.

And please report if that solved the issue.

Updated above answer. Forgot to add.

Now fixed. See above post.

Alternatively, since the https://github.com/Whonix/anon-shared-build-apt-sources-tpo package is installed by default… There are already scripts installed to automate all this.

They’re untested outside the build script, but written for having them run outside the build script in mind, and I don’t see how why they shouldn’t work. In worst case, they just wouldn’t work. Nothing worse. But I am quite certain it would work.

I ended up backing up info to a .vdi (thanks for the procedure on that) and just downloaded the new version 9 images. I’m good to go. Thanks.
