Fedora 33 has reached EOL

As previously announced, Fedora 33 has reached EOL (end-of-life). If you have not already done so, we strongly recommend upgrading your Fedora 33 templates and standalones to Fedora 34 immediately.

We provide fresh Fedora 34 template packages through the official Qubes repositories, which you can install in dom0 by following the standard installation instructions. Alternatively, we also provide step-by-step instructions for performing an in-place upgrade of an existing Fedora template. After upgrading your templates, please remember to switch all qubes that were using the old template to use the new one.

For a complete list of template releases that are supported for your specific Qubes release, see our supported template releases.

Please note that no user action is required regarding the OS version in dom0. For details, please see our note on dom0 and EOL.

Note for 4.1 release candidate testers: Qubes R4.1-rc1 already includes the Fedora 34 template by default, so no action is required.

Is there any estimate when Fedora 35 will be available?
I found Fedora 35 template · Issue #6969 · QubesOS/qubes-issues · GitHub and can see that some progress has been made, but how long will it likely take until a stable template is available?

I liked the ability to skip every other Fedora release but recently, this is no longer possible (likely because most development is focused on Qubes 4.1, which I completely understand).


I find it problematic that Fedora 34 broke my system (Doesn’t work as sys-net template, doesn’t work as VPN VM template) as I described here:

And no one provided a solution. I switched to Debian 11 templates and only then my system worked and I was able to quit Fedora 33.
