Kali Linux Update Issue

kali Oct 29, 2020

If you are using Kali and have issues downloading packages or even doing an update && upgrade then there is a solution.

This is normally an issue if you run Kali Linux in Virtual box on Windows at the same time as Hyper-V or Docker.

To fix the issue run the following commands in Kali

$ sudo bash
# mkdir /etc/gcrypt
# echo all > /etc/gcrypt/hwf.deny

Now run sudo apt-get update && upgrade again. Everything should now be working
