Update standalone vm fedora and exclude windows

Hello there,

I would like to update my fedora standalone vm and exclude my windows standalone vm. How can I do that ?

What is preventing you to select whatever you’d like when launching Qubes updater?

According to the documentation, users are encouragged to use the following command due to a bug.

“qubesctl --show-output --skip-dom0 --standalones state.sls update.qubes-vm”

So when the command is lauched it will then fails when it tries to run windows.

Where it says so?

I’m not sure, but instead you could use --targets argument

What is the syntax typo if I want to update Fedora standalone vm?

Other user who will read this will take it granted for free, so please let us know where did you find this encouragement.

Did you create it from a Fedora template?
Then just select it from the list in Qubes Update tool.
If not, then you have to manually update from in the standalone.(Or
install the qubes mgmt packages)

You’ve already been given the syntax for updating from command line in
qubesctl --show-output --skip-dom0 --targets NAME state.sls update.qubes-vm
You could have found this yourself with qubesctl --help

I never presume to speak for the Qubes team.
When I comment in the Forum or in the mailing lists I speak for myself.


worked for me

Oh, it looks like the text has been removed.

The correct syntax is as follow.

sudo qubesctl --show-output --skip-dom0 --targets “name of your standalone vm” state.sls update.qubes-vm

However from now on I will use the update facility in qubes.

Yes, true but since the post was open already I thought the syntax has to print . Thank you.
