So I surmounted all the errors in Stage 1 of my upgrade in place from 4.0.x to 4.1, and the rest of the Stages went off without a hitch. I rebooted then squinted my eyes at the desktop (GUI settings were lost?) and opened a terminal to run the post-upgrade script,
sudo qubes-dist-upgrade --resync-appmenus-features.
I triggered the command and it ripped through my stock Debian-10 and Debian-11 templates quickly (a few minutes each?), then it got to a Debian standalone VM of mine that is about 500gb in size (~1000x larger than the Debian templates).
The process is still on that 3rd qube after over 48 hours. I didn’t know about any verbose option so there are no indications as to progress. The machine seems to be functioning normally otherwise. Questions:
1/ Is this post-upgrade script’s runtime proportional to the VM size? If so, that’s very inefficient – I might need to wait another week or longer.
2/ How would I know if the process hung? I do see my drive light flashing for a moment every 20s or so.
3/ Will this script restore my desktop settings, such as resolution? They appear to have been reset to default in the upgrade.
4/ What exactly is this script doing? Do I need to wait for it to complete execution before I can really utilize the OS again?
Thank you for your time.
