Updates over Tor

So if you enable the option “Enable system and template updates over the Tor anonymity network using Whonix” during installation, is this referring to all updates from that point on? I’ve seen a few people say they have problems with this because they ticked the box, yet their updates still sometimes go through the clear net.

This can be a serious security hazard and be used to de-anonymize someone.


As @adw said in the link, if it’s the case, it must be a bug. If you can, please verify this and fill a bug report.

I never had any problems with this, was just wondering how this feature worked and saw some people have problems with this. Thanks for the reply.
