Dear Marek, I've tried the solution you proposed in that post. I've managed to make that little script to work (strangely enough, it looks like salt minds about indenting in the code. I'm mainly used to latex that doesn't care and this left me a bit surprised.
I created a file /srv/salt/update-templates.sls and wrote uptodate: pkg.uptodate:  into it. Then I created /srv/salt/update-templates.top and wrote base: qubes:type:template: - match: pillar - update-templates into it. Then I gave ' sudo qubesctl top.enalbe update-templates ' and tested it with ' sudo qubesctl --all state.highstate ' (these commands don't work for me if I'm not superuser). unfortunately, this doesn't work for me. There is some green stuff going on (like qvm.exists and other things that I don't really understand). Then, it runs through the templates returning errors (it basically says, as an instance, 'fedora-23: ERROR'). On the app vm it just skips saying that there is nothing to do (and this is what it is supposed to do, so at least it recognizes that it has to run only on templates). My feeling (that may be wrong, obviously) is that the command pkg.uptodate:  does not work for god only knows what reason. Any idea?
