I was updating whonix-gw and I was looking at the differences between a new and old file, however I couldn´t exit the view. So I shut whonix-gw down, and now it will no longer update and sys-whonix cannot connect to Tor.
apt says this:
WARNING: Execution of /usr/bin/apt prevented by /etc/uwt.d/40_qubes.conf because no torified Qubes updates proxy found.
Please make sure Whonix-Gateway (commonly called sys-whonix) is running.
- If you are using Qubes R3.2: The NetVM of this TemplateVM should be set to Whonix-Gateway (commonly called sys-whonix).
- If you are using Qubes R4 or higher: Check your dom0 /etc/qubes-rpc/policy/qubes.UpdatesProxy settings.
At the very top of that file you should have the following:
$tag:whonix-updatevm $default allow,target=sys-whonix
To see if it is fixed, try running in Whonix TemplateVM:
sudo systemctl restart qubes-whonix-torified-updates-proxy-check
Then try to update / use apt-get again.
For more help on this subject see:
[How-to: Fix dom0 Qubes-Whonix ™ UpdatesProxy Settings](removed link)
If this warning message is transient, it can be safely ignored.
Tor control panel in sys-whonix says Tor is not running. When I click restart Tor, it says Tor Controller cannot be constructed. This is very likely because you have "DisableNetwork 1"line in some torrc file(s).
