I am running a Qubes R4.0 install on Thinkpad X250, fully `*-testing` updated, 
and after restoring most of my R3.2 qubes and getting almost ready to switch 
fully to the new version, something happened with `qubesd` or `qubes-db-dom0`.

Most `qvm-*` command fail with:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/qvm-start", line 5, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/qubesadmin/tools/qvm_start.py", line

  File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/qubesadmin/vm/__init__.py", line 100,

    message_format % tuple(int(d) if d.isdigit() else d for d in args),
TypeError: not enough arguments for format string

The first occurrence was when attempting to restore a backup:
qubesadmin.backup: Error restoring VM p-android, skipping: not enough arguments 
for format string

When the issue started, all qubes that were active were still operating. And 
`qvm-run <qube> <command>` worked fine on them. Other commands like `qvm-ls` 
work ok.

After a reboot, all ServiceVMs are not starting, so the complete system is 

I did some analysis on the traceback and the error seems to be simply that an 
Exception is raised without any data. But I do not know how to enable more 
debugging or provide more specific data.

Tryed to restart `dom0` daemons, look into /var/log/qubes/* and 
/var/log/libvirt/* without getting any clues about what is failing.

Only change from stock install is that I had to `lvextend` the default `pool00` 
volume to have enough disk space, and the extension segment is on a second, 
permanent SSD.

Should I raise an issue?
Any debugging tips?
