Whonix 13 is approaching end-of-life:

So I decided to install Whonix 14 from scratch in Qubes OS 4.0.

I personally had more success installing the new Whonix 14 templates using following procedure (instead of attempting to upgrade from Whonix 13 to Whonix 14) :

After installing the new whonix-gw-14 and whonix-ws-14 TemplateVMs, I had to create a new AppVM called sys-whonix-14 and connect sys-whonix-14 to TemplateVM whonix-gw-14. During creation of sys-whonix-14, make sure to enable Networking.

In sys-whonix-14, run
sudo anon-connection-wizard
to set up Tor networking.

Run following commands in Dom0:

qubes-prefs default_dispvm whonix-ws-14-dvm

qubes-prefs updatevm sys-whonix-14

Last step is to set sys-whonix-14 as updatevm in configuration file /etc/qubes-rpc/policy/qubes.UpdatesProxy   in Dom0

Check the new settings in Dom0 by running the command   qubes-prefs (not qvm-prefs)

That should do it.

Hope this helps someone out there 🙂
