Yes, exactly the same here,  commenting out allows update  but I've been
noticing these DDG .onion resets for maybe a week or more 

and just last few days , maybe because I haven't rebooted the AppVM for
a while  the  warning  about  activity "being linked" 

two other things: 1) the Qube manager despite sucessfully updates, the
green arrow to need update persists , even after restarting the Q
manager and
2) update-torbrowser gives a scary warning  in  whonix-ws-14 to
override it two options  , I haven't tried either ..

btw, this is all in Q4.0  with  the latest  dom0  patches , most recent
just a few days ago .

 I am using Qubes 3.2. All TemplateVMs and dom0 have been updated
 sometime within the past week.

 Since about the same time, my Workstation TemplateVM and every AppVM
 based on it has been unable to connect to the internet.

 The Whonix Gateway TemplateVM works fine, as does the sys-whonix
 NetVM. Furthermore, all the AppVMs based on the Fedora and Debian
 templates work even when routed through sys-whonix. I also have all
 the TemplateVMs set to update through sys-whonix, and every one of
 them is able to do this with the sole exception of whonix-ws-14. So if
 I had to guess, I’d say the problem lies with the Whonix Workstation
 TemplateVM itself.

 When I try updating whonix-ws-14, it “hits” everything until the 10th
 repository. Once it gets there, the screen shows “[working]” and stays
 there.

 Has anyone else run into this problem? What steps can I take to begin
 troubleshooting it?

 Thanks in advance!

What I'm seeing in the sources list is this :

#kdesudo xdg-open /etc/apt/sources.list.d/user.list

deb tor+http://sgvtcaew4bxjd7ln.onion stretch/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stretch/updates main contrib non-free

deb tor+http://vwakviie2ienjx6t.onion/debian stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free



If I comment out both  tor+http   references and restart the Template it
still fails,

Which one are you  saying is THE "onion server" ?

I should have said in my previous email that I got the same error you just 
pasted. What I did was comment out the onion server in 
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/whonix.list as well.

That fixed the problem for me.
