Upgrade from fedora 32 to 36 on R 4.0.6

Hi all,

I am trying to upgrade the Fedora 32 to 36, however when I pass the sudo dnf --releasever=36 distro-sync --best --allowerasing I get this error:

Qubes OS Repository for VM (updates)                                                                  190  B/s | 153  B     00:00    
Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'qubes-vm-r4.0-current':
  - Status code: 404 for https://yum.qubes-os.org/r4.0/current/vm/fc36/repodata/repomd.xml (IP:
Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'qubes-vm-r4.0-current': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried

Is this related to the fact that Qubes v4 is EOL? Is there a way to update the template without having to upgrade Qubes?


No chance! Fedora 36 will not be made available for R4.0. R4.0 is also EOL, so you should upgrade to R4.1.
