Hi everyone,
I've packaged for Qubes all the work (not the dnf plugins as we don't need it currently) of Mihai with little few adjustments:


I've built and tested all of them into Bullseye. With this freshly created bullseye template as UpdateVM, it makes dom0 update working like a charm!

I can help into testing/maintaining/any other thing needed to make things moving forward for Bullseye and especially having DNF in Debian.

Best regards,
