Updating standalones qubes fails with ERROR (exception Failed to copy Salt configuration ...) when reach windows qube

I’m trying to update all standalones qubes by running next command in dom0

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

and the first qube starts my windows qube and fails with the error:
ERROR (exception Failed to copy Salt configuration to disp-mgmt-windows)

I found that you could specify the qubes that you want to update using the option
but I have many qubes and is quite a pita to keep that list updated

Any option to exclude a specific qube (the windows one in this case) from the updating ?

Hi @ady29,

Your question makes sense to me: I believe Windows standalones are probably not managed by Salt, and excluding them seems like it would be the most straightforward way to achieve your goal.

Someone asked before about excluding targets from the qubesctl command:
