Anonymous update (via "qubes update")?


I wanted to know if updates are done through the Tor network when using the “qubes update” (the little star on the top right).

not by default

I understand: as a general rule, Qubes does not prevent prying eyes from knowing that it is being used.

How to force “qubes update” (the little star on the top right) to use TOR ?

If you selected routing all updates over Tor (sys-whonix) in the installer, then yes.

Yes, indeed: during the installation.

However, it seems to me that you can also specify it in :
Qube Manager > System > Global settings

In 4.0 this only affects updates for dom0
For templates, you need to set the update proxy in
