#Kali Linux: fix sources.list


If you are running Kali Linux 2016.x which is in a rolling release, you might need to update the source list for apt in order to update the system.
If you see something like the following:

#apt-get update
Reading package list... Done

it means your sources.list file needs to be fixed.

In this case you can use this one-liner from the root prompt:

#echo "deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Now you can update your system:

#apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y
