Trying to re-install the sys-usb template based on the following resource:
but an error message is returned in response to the command:
sudo qubes-dom0-update --action=reinstall sys-usb
Errors during downloading metadata for repository ‘qubes-dom0-cached’:
Curl error (37): Couldn’t read a file:// for file:///var/lib/qubes/updates/repodata/repomd.xml [Couldn’t open file /var/lib/qubes/updates/repodata/repomd.xml]
Error: Failed to download metadata for repo ‘qubes-dom0-cached’: Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried
what is the correct template name for sys-usb in the Qubes repo?

There are specific
instructions on creating a USB qube in the Qubes OS documentation. Have you followed these?
what I mean by that is, what is the correct name of the .rpm file in the
Index of /r4.2/
I already have a sys-usb VM but there is a package in there which is taking up way too much disk space and i can’t get the termianl to open. So the next step is to re-install.

There is not an RPM. The USB qube can be created using salt or manually. Follow the steps documented on USB qubes page.
directions to remove a USB qube
Then, follow the above directions to create a USB qube.
Are you receiving a specific error?
Have you tried
resizing the private storage space?
Ok thank you very much. When did they switch from fedora-36 to debian-11 for the sys-usb template?
Any particular reason for the switch?

I believe per
@cayce’s earlier post that the salt setup uses your default template. So, the Qubes OS project has not switched anything on their end.
If you want or need a Fedora qube, then changed your default template or manually create the USB qube.
where is this salt formula code repo, are there other formulas in the Qubes git repo?
I see that now; has anybody tried building the gui-VM?
I was thinking of user developer salt formulas or other formulas in the documentation as listed here:
