Release Upgrade

If a message like this appears.

WARNING: Whonix News Result:
✘ Outdated: Installed whonix-gateway-packages-dependencies 3.4.2-1 is outdated!

WARNING: Whonix News Result:
✘ Outdated: Installed whonix-workstation-packages-dependencies 3.4.2-1 is outdated!

Then most likely a Release Upgrade is necessary.

For the latest instructions on a release upgrade from Whonix 13 to Whonix 14, see here.

An Standard Upgrade makes sure all packages within a major release are up-to-date. In contrast, a Release Upgrade upgrades from one major version to another.

Due to technical limitations, a standard ("everyday") upgrade cannot perform the same functions as a release upgrade. The latter procedure upgrades a far greater number of packages, often removes select packages and requires the user to apply extra steps as per release upgrade documentation.
