Noob librem 13 version 2 - please help


I am having issues and worried I’ve been hacked, I didnt receive a
response to my last email either?

It is an old version of pureos I think, so I tried to update using sudo
apt update and this was the result:

dean911997@blackbeauty:~$ sudo apt update
[sudo] password for dean911997:
Hit:1 green InRelease

NULL || g_variant_type_is_definite (GVSB(builder)->type)’ failed

appstreamcli refresh-cache > /dev/null; fi’
E: Sub-process returned an error code

Also, it came with a usb with qubes on it, but trying to boot that from
the USB fails as it says not safe or something, it was straight out of
an unopened box.

Also I couldn’t change the time at all manually when offline, it was set
to 2100 and change the dates would not save, when I went online the time
updates correctly though - how can I not change manually though?

I also cant see preferences and things as a dropdown on the top left
like other linux distro’s, it just shows whatever app I’m currently in
and nothing else (Activities > Thunderbird for example, nothing else to
select for the menu.

Many thanks
