Like Chris, I use a separate qube for updates. Unlike you and Chris I don't see the behaviour you report. Let's try to dig in before raising a bug report. I've tested this with 30-minimal template 201905071541 and 201906241949, from stable and testing. I've tested against dom0 stable and dom0 testing: both fully updated. Test boxes are an old x230 and a custom rig with X-series CPU and 32G RAM. In all cases, the proxy is started as appropriate, and the update process (from fedora 29 and 30-minimal) waits until proxy is up and then proceeds. What hardware are you, Sphere and Chris, running? Sphere - if you create a dedicated update qube using the 30-minimal with qubes-core-agent-networking installed, enable the qubes-updates-proxy service, route it through sys-firewall, and edit the policy file appropriately, do you see the same behaviour? (Almost instant fail) What if you start the new update proxy before attempting a 'dnf update'? unman -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
