Did you uninstall any packages?

Did you read https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Whonix_Debian_Packages already?


#3

thank you for getting back. The only package that I can remember uninstalled is 7-zip. Is that the issue?


#4

Most likely, yes.

sudo apt-get remove p7zip-full
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  anon-shared-desktop-kde p7zip-full whonix-gateway

Is there a reason this happens to remove whonix-gateway which is not related to p7zip?

Same thing happened to apparmor where removing it meant removing almost all default whonix dependencies and components.
