Fedora template no longer supported 4.2.0-rc5

After updating Qubes 4.2.0-rc4 to rc5 on Notebook NH5x_NH7xHP got this notification:

so did an in-place upgrade to Fedora 39, and get this notification:

After updating grub (sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg) and reboot:

The notification remains.
As you can see on the pictures, after updating there are two network icons. ¨cat /etc/qubes-release¨ in terminal says I am still on Qubes rc4 though i did the update normally so i should be on rc5. Also, when updating again in terminal i get this warning about datetime deprecated:
/usr/lib/python3.12/site-packages/salt/utils/jid.py:19: DeprecationWarning: datetime.datetime.utcnow() is deprecated and scheduled for removal in a future version. Use timezone-aware objects to represent datetimes in UTC: datetime.datetime.now(datetime.UTC).
return datetime.datetime.utcnow()*
Okay, Qubes 4.2.0-rc4 worked just fine, after updating normally to 4.2.0-rc5 there are some new issues. I am not going to install a new fedora template. That would be too much work, reïnstalling all the software I use. That is why i always do an in place upgrade of the templates.

Appears to be this:


This has already been fixed in the code, but the fix will not be reflected in existing ISOs.

The following command will fix your issue (in a dom0 terminal):

qvm-features fedora-39 template-name fedora-39

I had the same issue as well for multiple templates. The message will go away after you reboot or restart the widget.


Thnx. After

The message was gone indeed, and then updated dom0 again, now i am really on Qubes release 4.2.0-rc5
