VirtualBox Whonix VM: no internet connection

I am using Fedora 34 and installed VirtualBox. I am launching a Whonix VM on it. Sadly, the WiFi doesn’t work on it. I am having the default settings (NAT). Whonix Gateway as well as Whonix Workstation are both running. Whonix Workstation’s Device settings says NAT, “Enable Network Adapter” is enabled, and “Cable connected” as well. On Whonix Gateway too. If you need more logs, please tell me which command I have to use for the output I can give you then.

I have recently used the following command to update my Whonix Workstation (the Gateway update worked well).

sudo apt-get-update-plus dist-upgrade

Unfortunately, this didn’t work. This is the output I got:

I am willing to reward the one that fixes the problem with me with some Monero if you like.

Thank you very much!

No WiFi needed. Whonix for VirtualBox uses the host’s internet connection - as any VirtualBox VM usually does.

Well, the problem is that I have no internet connection in the VM. I open the browser and I’m not having a connection even though the host’s internet works.
