I think the best solution for updating Kali chroot would be a configuration management tool e.g. Ansible (http://docs.ansible.com/) (ansible-pull (http://docs.ansible.com/playbooks_intro.html#ansible-pull)), Salt (http://www.saltstack.com/), Puppet (http://puppetlabs.com/).

In this way it is possible to change the chroot, while keeping nearly all user changes untouched.

If you then provide a separate Kernel update flashable via recovery. And the nethunter app takes care about everything in android. And has a option to trigger the configuration management tool.

OK just my thoughts about this ;)

At the moment, you can only (as far as I know) keeping Kali up to date as per usual (terminal ->
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

I ran updates twice, using apt-get, first time went great but next time, and every time after it crashed trying to upgrade metasploit.

Could you supply us with some logs of the update process or the crash so we might be able to figure out the reason?
Thanks,

A metasploit update will result in a error in the post-instalation script because postures isn't running. You can prevent this by starting postures before the update or run metasploit e.g. Nethunter menu - 6 - 1 before the update.

Agree with forumkali@yopmail.com have you tried :- service postgresql start -: in terminal before update?
