This is completely untested. Let me know what you think and if this
works for you.

* A backup of all Qubes VMs using the usual Qubes backup mechanism
(independent from below) is advisable anyhow.

* One who mind about their contents could clone their sys-whonix to
sys-whonix-backup and clone their anon-whonix to anon-whonix-backup.
Those who don't mind about their contents probably don't have this issue

* Then delete anon-whonix and sys-whonix.

* Then proceed as per https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Qubes/Install

* Then delete the newly created sys-whonix / anon-whonix.

* Clone sys-whonix-backup to sys-whonix.

* Clone anon-whonix-backup to anon-whonix.

* Finally delete superfluous sys-whonix-backup / anon-whonix-backup.
