#1

Let’s test the following recently build Whonix TemplateVM packages point release.



#2
  • update/upgrade within the template doesnt show any new packages

  • using this command:

sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community --action=upgrade qubes-template-whonix-gw-14

it doesnt show any new version to download:

[user@dom0 ~]$ dnf list | grep whonix

#3

Qubes issue.

Could you please try creating a new dom0-update VM based on fedora-28 template? As per:
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Qubes/Reinstall#UpdateVM_Setting


#4

Thx to @Lilias to for his notice of the missing part in the command mentioned here:

The command should be changed from:

sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community --action=upgrade <qubes-template-package>

it should be

sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community-testing --action=upgrade <qubes-template-package>

from qubes-templates-community to qubes-templates-community-testing

shall it be corrected in the wiki?


#5

GPA installed by default , but Kgpg there as well.


#6

TNT BOM BOM:

shall it be corrected in the wiki?

Yes, but not as simple as replacing the one with the other since testing
must not be the default.


#7

Good thing now switching between keyboards layouts back to work again.

Great Job!!
