[qubes-users] capturing the content of a shell from a disposable VM

Running a dom0 update (‘sudo qubes-dom0-update’) in a disposable VM (per Solomon1732 in https://forum.qubes-os.org/t/qubes-dom0-update-fails-to-detect-release-version-on-all-operations/6729/6), a shell window appears for the dvm that records the events during the update. With the constant updating scrolling is difficult, and upon completion of the update the window closes – all these make it next to impossible to examine the progress and any errors when there is a long list of packages in the update. It seems reasonable to think that there’d be a way to capture the shell content for this purpose? Any help or pointers to help overcome this part of my Qubes OS learning curve is much appreciated. Thanks

Found an answer :slight_smile:

sudo qubes-dom0-update --console --show-output
Sorry for the false alarm.
