[qubes-users] Fedora 31 approaching EOL

Dear Qubes Community,

Fedora 33 was released today [1], 2020-10-27. According to the Fedora
Release Life Cycle [2], this means that Fedora 31 is scheduled to reach
EOL (end-of-life [3]) in approximately four weeks, around 2020-11-24 [4].

We strongly recommend that all Qubes users upgrade their Fedora 31
TemplateVMs and StandaloneVMs to Fedora 32 or higher before Fedora 31
reaches EOL. We provide step-by-step upgrade instructions for upgrading
Fedora TemplateVMs [5]. For a complete list of TemplateVM versions
supported for your specific version of Qubes, see Supported TemplateVM
Versions [6].

We also provide a fresh Fedora 32 TemplateVM package through the
official Qubes repositories, which you can install in dom0 by following
the standard installation instructions [7].

After upgrading your TemplateVMs, please remember to switch all qubes
that were using the old template to use the new one [8].

Please note that no user action is required regarding the OS version in
dom0. For details, please see our note on dom0 and EOL [9].
