How to update non-template qubes over qrexec while using apt-cahcer-ng as netVM & everything in policies talk about cacher

When the qube has qvm-prefs set to provides_network true, it won’t update via cacher.

This is because setting provides_network true enables tinyproxy, which
binds to port 8082.
The solution, (unless you actually want tinyproxy running), is to mask
the service in the template and/or put systemctl stop tinyproxy,
systemctl mask tinyproxy in to /rw/config/rc.local

I never presume to speak for the Qubes team.
When I comment in the Forum or in the mailing lists I speak for myself.
