Sys-firewall - networkmanager won't run / cannot enable nm-applet

I have installed qubes-whonix. After having updated everything and everything appearing to be in working order I rebooted to finalize updates to the fedora template. Once the machine rebooted I logged onto qubes to find that I no longer had bootstrapping error with connecting to tor. However, I now get a little square in the system tray, when I right clock on it and select ‘About’ I get a little window with the heading ‘[sys-firewall] About NetworkManager Applet’. This networkmanager applet is not running as said by the bubble that appears when I hover over the small box. The prompt to enable it is also shaded out.

I have been unable to find any information on this. I do not have the knowledge to understand the implications of this. Appreciate any help in understanding or even solving this issue.

Thank you

Good day,

Sorry to tell you, but from what I can tell, this isn’t a question related to Whonix directly. Please thus ask in the Qubes forums.

Have a nice day,
