So yesterday I installed Qubes on my PC, but after attempting to update I am getting some unusual results. Yesterday it was saying there was only updates available for dom0, so I updated them, after a restart it is saying there are now updates for fedra-30, unfortunately, after a restart, qubes is still showing ‘fedora-30’, only this time I can no longer select it for update, but there are updates for the whonix ws and gw, and yet after updating the cycle continues. What is going on here?
When I attempted to update using ‘sudo qubes-dom0-update’ I got the following errors :
'could not delete old database at /var/lib/ques/‘dom0-updates/home/user/.rpmdbold.2828’
‘https://mirrors.phx.ms/qubes/repo/yum/r4.0/tempates-itl/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] curl#6 - “Could not resolve host: mirrrs.phs.ms”’
‘No new updates available’
I try again, this time through sys-firewall (both had internet connections) and it says it is downloading updates for ‘Feodra 25 -x86_64’ even though apparently Fedora 30 is already installed on the system, aswell as ‘Qubes Dom0 Repository (updates)’
Then just says:
‘Nothing to do.’
'No packages downloaded
Regardless the Qubes updating is showing updates for whonix/fedora/dom0.
This is a fresh install of Qubes R4.0.3, although a similar thing happened on my laptop after updating through the updater from version 3.2, but this is now happening on a completely fresh install.
Previously on Qubes I would have no problem finding and installing the required updates through either the updates prompt or through right clicking a qube and selecting update qube. Is there something I’m missing about the updates process on R4.0? I have just tried updating Fedora through the terminal and has just now successfully started ‘fedora-32’, although I am still concerned as to why the updater is missing the fact that fedora hasn’t been updated, surely this should be managed through there? How do I make sure I’m not missing any important security updates if the updater appears broken?
