Tor Config Check Result ERROR after sudo upgrade with Whonix-Gateway 10

After running WhonixCheck, it wanted to install some updates.

After, I get this error with the Wcheck.

ERROR: Tor Config Check Result:
Your /etc/tor/torrc file contains at least one error.
(Tor exit code: 255)
Tor reports:
Jun 09 03:18:11.001 [notice] Tor v0.2.6.8 (git-69b46cf274f35955) running on Linux with Libevent 2.0.19-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.1e and Zlib 1.2.7.

Jun 09 03:18:11.004 [err] Reading config failed–see warnings above.

Any ideas?

It seems I’m the only one experiencing this?

Edit by Patrick:
changed title

Looks like.

Try this.

Check / post (redacted) contents of your /etc/tor/torrc.

Hallo dear Adrelanos. I get this Error on Gateway after update/upgrade.

Which Whonix version?

For diagnosis… Can you try please if it works when you commented out the Tor hidden service?

Hallo dear Adrelanos. I reply the Code three times again. Now Tor works, but when i do whonixcheck i get the same Error Message.

Best Regards!

Also run this command please.

Does everything else work? Tor is running? Connectivity from the workstation?

It could be just a failing whonixcheck test that happens since Tor was upgraded.

You can try to disable that check. Create a file.

With the following content.

Dear Adrelanos. Timesync wassuccessfully, Workstation works successfully. Whonixcheck on Workstation works perfectly without any Error. Now run command

Works!

Yes now the check is disabled. Question! Can i enable the automatic check again, when Gateway starts? What about the 50_user File? Delete or not?

Best Regards!

It’s most likely a bug in whonixcheck. Keep that file until the next upgrade of whonixcheck.

Ok, i will do so. Thank you so much for support!

Best Regards!
