dom0 updates came through today, so I installed them and rebooted. The updates installed successfully (at least as reported by Qubes Update tool). I saw that there were Salt-related updates, but didn’t note anything else.
When I rebooted, I then used Qubes Update to force-check for updates for debian-11, whonix-gw-16, whonix-ws-16, which didn’t yield any updates. I rebooted again and ran into my first issue: When I tried to start my AppVMs, this would fail, throwing an error regarding the private storage pool already existing or something like that (my apologies for not capturing the exact error - I see so many errors in Qubes that redoing something or rebooting almost always works, so it’s usually not worth it to document these kinds of errors).
When I rebooted again, I was disturbed to see that all of my qubes have no private storage. They all report 0 “Disk Usage” in the Qube Manager and no qubes will boot. When I try to start any Qube (sys-net in this example), I get the error:
-Title: [Dom0] Error starting Qube!
-Message: volume qubes_dom0/vm-sys-net-private missing
I rebooted a few more times, hoping this would resolve itself (as many past errors have), but this is a persistent issue. I can’t start any qube, which means no networking and no updates to fix this. Any ideas?
