Unable to upgrade Gateway

I am currently using kernel 4.19.0-8-amd64 after having issues with freezing when trying to upgrade to kernel 4.19.0-9-amd64

Initial error:
E: dpkg was interrupted yada yada yada run ‘sudo dpkg --configrue -a’

hangs on setting up linux-image-4.19 and freezes the instance
cd /var/lib/dpkg/updates & run sudo rm *
able to run sudo apt-get-update-plus dist-upgrade again but continues to freeze.
sudo dpkg --purge --force-all linux-image-4.19.0-9-amd64
sudo apt --fix-broken install
Still freezes.
sudo dpkg -r linux-image-4.19.0-9-amd64 linux-image-amd64
still freezes
sudo dpkg -r virtualbox-guest-dkms dkms
sudo apt-get upgrade and it still freezes
This time it’s freezing on setting up linux-headers-4.19.0-9-amd64
sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-4.19.0-9-amd64
After going through all that I am able to run:

sudo apt-get-update-plus dist-upgrade

But it shows zero updates available. I can’t figure out why it isn’t showing upgrade for kernel available anymore as I no longer have it installed.

This is whonix 15. Original install was 14 upgraded via cli if that matters. The workstation is fully upgraded to 4.19.0-9 with no issues.

Generally:

Turns out I needed to run:

sudo apt-get install non-qubes-whonix-gateway-xfce non-qubes-whonix-gateway-cli

Never mind that did not install the latest kernel or increasing RAM.

That doesn’t increase RAM.

Increase RAM as per instructions here: Whonix XFCE for VirtualBox users: RAM increase required

I understand how to increase RAM perhaps it was poorly worded. I was stating that i increased the RAM to 1280MB from 512MB but it didn’t do anything.

After that I ran the upgrade stated above with no success however a box popped up telling me to install the packages listed in my last post. I installed them and ran it again but there are zero upgrades available. So I tried installing the newest kernel manually and it seems to finish but upon reboot I still only have kernel 4.19.0-8 installed.

Please run the following commands and post the output of these commands here.

cat /etc/apt/sources.list

sudo dpkg --configrue -a

sudo apt update

sudo apt dist-upgrade

sudo apt-get install non-qubes-whonix-gateway-xfce

sudo apt-get install linux-image-amd64 linux-headers-amd64
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Nothing

- Why is buster-updates disabled by default?

- Why are sources (deb-src) disabled by default?

Because those are not required by most users, to save time while

After rebooting kernel 4.19.0-9 finally showed up but now its freezing on when I try to boot into it. Error:

Freeing ununsed kernel image memory: 1588K

Booting now! Thanks for the help. Very odd as I had ran that last command before with no success.
