You were right, these were incorrectly set.  I had to manually change
the Dom0 UpdateVM to Sys-Whonix, and uncomment the $type:TemplateVM
$default allow,target=sys-whonix line. I'll be performing a fresh
install of Qubes R4.0.1 on a friend's device with the same settings, if
this happens with hers too I'll report a bug.

I followed the Onionizing Repos guide, commented out the metalinks and
uncommented the onion lines. On first test (sudo qubes-dom0-update) I
got a 404 error:

> HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

> http://yum.sik5nlgfc5qylnnsr57qrbm64zbdx6t4lreyhpon3ychmxmiem7tioad.onion/r4.0/current/dom0/fc25/repodata/repomd.xml
> "Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata for (repomd.xml) for repository: 
> qubes-dom0-current"

The following text was in white instead of red, so it's possible the
other repos were successfully updated, but I'm not sure.

> Qubes OS Repository for Dom0  12 MB/s | 26kB 00:00

That was the end of the text echoed to the Console.  Has that particular
file been moved and the yum.repos.d/qubes-dom0.repo file not been updated?
