An update seems triggered - visible in Tray - when a qube based on its respective template is accessed.
The checkbox “Enable updates for qubes without know…” seems unrelated to the issue and has no effect.
Question: how to trigger an update of all templates via GUI?
Yes, it helps! Some hints, though:
- …in the Applications Menu under “System Tools.”… should read “Qubes Tools” and potentially help many
- “Enable updates for qubes without known available updates,” is worth considering to have the check box tick persist
- a “select all” options saves a few mouse clicks
RTFM is a good advice.
