New Identity button not working in whonix-ws vm

I have never had a problem with the new identity button. But since updating tor browser to 11.0.6 it no longer works.

Is anyone having this issue?

The error message says Torbutton cannot safely give you a new identity. It does not have access to the Tor Control Port. Are you running Tor Browser Bundle?

How can I fix this?

Updating your whonix templates will solve the problem.
