Fresh install of Qubes, in the process of updating the templates when during whonix-gw update the entire top right panel, which contained all the symbols for internet connection, etc, and sits adjacent to the account name, disappeared - a message popped up about audio being disabled - I then opened up Qubes Updater, and selected for whonix-gw/-ws to update. The updater then immediately closed.
I’ve used Qubes for awhile. I’m doing a fresh install for the upgrade from whonix 15 to 16. Never happened before and my laptop should be perfect for Qubes OS.
