The Error I have when try to resume the Guest with Virt Manager :

Error unpausing domain: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'cont': Resetting the Virtual Machine is required

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 75, in cb_wrapper
    callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/", line 111, in tmpcb

    if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainResume() failed', dom=self)
libvirt.libvirtError: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'cont': Resetting the Virtual Machine is required

Any help would be so helpful cause I stuck in this case for like 4 days already.

The QEMU project is currently moving its bug tracking to another system.
For this we need to know which bugs are still valid and which could be
closed already. Thus we are setting the bug state to "Incomplete" now.

If the bug has already been fixed in the latest upstream version of QEMU,
then please close this ticket as "Fix released".

If it is not fixed yet and you think that this bug report here is still
valid, then you have two options:

1) If you already have an account on, please open a new ticket
for this problem in our new tracker here:

and then close this ticket here on Launchpad (or let it expire auto-
matically after 60 days). Please mention the URL of this bug ticket on
Launchpad in the new ticket on GitLab.

2) If you don't have an account on and don't intend to get
one, but still would like to keep this ticket opened, then please switch
the state back to "New" or "Confirmed" within the next 60 days (other-
wise it will get closed as "Expired"). We will then eventually migrate
the ticket automatically to the new system (but you won't be the reporter
of the bug in the new system and thus you won't get notified on changes

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.
