Personally I’d say that the majority of this problem comes from the mis- design that VMs like debian and even fedora are maintained by DNF/yum. To do a system upgrade by downloading a new RPM makes no sense as that completely destroys all changes made in the template. For instance new software that was installed. If qubes were to disconnect the idea that an RPM of several hundred MBs is the way to download/install/upgrade a VM, it would become much easier to understand. Maybe in Qubes 5 :) -- Tom Zander Blog: https://zander.github.io Vlog: https://vimeo.com/channels/tomscryptochannel -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
