Is Qubes 4.0.4 more secure then 4.1? Even older versions of debian and fedora? Like debian 10 and fedora 32…
So when using stable qubes… Should you not update the templates then at all? And just update dom0 in the manager, and then just use the launch updater, and download what comes?
Is whonix 15 more secure then 16 and so on? Just wondering how you update 4.0.4 yourselves… Do you switch up some templates or just use the default updating tool?
I prefer to use the updating tool if it is most secure and stable of-course.
" Security updates
Security updates are an extremely important part of keeping your Qubes installation secure. When there is an important security issue, we will issue a Qubes Security Bulletin (QSB) via the Qubes Security Pack (
qubes-secpack ). It is very important to read each new QSB and follow any user instructions it contains. Most of the time, simply updating your system normally will be sufficient to obtain security updates. However, in some cases, special action may be required on your part, which will be explained in the QSB."
So would you guys just update Qubes stable with the normal tools? or would you update templates and so on…
I can download everything normal… But the progress with qibes and other stuff is fast, so i can’t really keep up with the progress…
What settings do you usually add after a fresh Qubes 4.0.4 install?
edit: whonix 15 can’t even update… So that’s an issue… gonna try again though. Should work.
I’m also a beginner. How do i update qubes 4.0.4 now again? It’s better to ask. the right commands and so on… Should i use whonix 16?
I think i found the right answer:
Perhaps Qubes 4.0 should be re-released including whonix 16 instead as default… And that normal updates just work? Just a suggestion…
Otherwise that command works.
