Qubes "Update Tool"

Current Update Tool doesn’t show much. Is it possible to enable some visibility as to what’s going on while it’s updating? I mean how much data has been downloaded or is to be downloaded and ETA etc. Right now all I get is a gear spining till the update isn’t finished.

R4.2 will come with new template update tool, that has progress information (among other improvements). The feature is tracked at Implement own non-interactive template update tool · Issue #7443 · QubesOS/qubes-issues · GitHub


Great :+1:

Hope it shows proper data.

What is the reason for dom0 taking ages to check for updates? We’re not even talking about downloading them, just checking

If you’re updating via Tor (sys-whonix), then keep in mind that it can be very slow.
