Unde doesn't work here?

Ubi = static location: Where are you? Ubi es?

Quo = motion toward: Where are you going? Quo vadis?

Unde = motion away: Where do you come from? Unde venis?

unde is 'from where', implies some movement. ubi is simply location.

e.g. unde venis -> "Where are you coming from?"

I tried the plural "you" but it wasn't accepted: "Ubi vos agri sunt?" Should this be considered correct also?

"Vos" is "you". You need "vostri", which is "your".
