If your network devices need extra packages for the template to work as a network VM

Use the lspci command to identify the devices, then run dnf search firmware (replace firmware with the appropriate device identifier) to find the needed packages and then install them.

Run in dom0 as many times as needed until all qubes are shutdown.

[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-shutdown --all

Right click net-sys cube on Qube manager and change Template to fedora-29-minimal-net.
