I was using whonix 12 on virtualbox on my Ubuntu 14.04 (didn’t even know there was whonix 13, I stopped reading the welcome message because it looks the same each time). I couldn’t log onto skype so I updated and upgraded everything with apt-get update, upgrade.
I do’nt think it updated to whonix 13 but it took a while.
I saw it updated vlc so I removed it because I don’t want it. Then I saw tons of package needing to be uninstalled but I didn’t bother because whonix is hard to understand, then I hit “yes, remove all these packages” and now I have no desktop anymore and I suppose I broke it in depth. When I connect I have a black shell asking my credentials.
I did the same stupid thing on both workstation and gateway.
- Is there a way to recover whonix? I had some “important data” there.
- If I upgrade to whonix 13, would it repair itself?
