sudo qubes-dom0-updatefrom the command line.
A few more questions:
In which qube do I run this command?
The warning says “Warning: Updating exclusively with direct commands such as qubes-dom0-update…”. I understand that your suggestion is run the command and terminate its further action (the actual update) before it happens. However, as a newcomer to Qubes OS who is careful not to mess up anything, I would like to ask explicitly: Isn’t running the command this way unsafe as well? I hope you could elaborate in relation to the issues mentioned in that warning.
Do you think it is appropriate to suggest to the developers to include the functionality “show what will be done before it is done” in Qubes Updater itself? Currently that “Details” menu does not provide any detail whatsoever until the process is complete, so one neither knows what will happen, how it is progressing or anything else. What is the proper way to suggest such feature?
