    Unhappy libsnmp15 unmet dependencies

    Code:
    apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     snmp : Depends: libsnmp15 (>= 5.4.3~dfsg) but it is not installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
    i alreadi did apt-get -f install but it show like this :
    Code:
    Reading changelogs... Done
    Setting up initscripts (2.88dsf-42) ...
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: exiting now!
    update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header
    dpkg: error processing initscripts (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     initscripts
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    i did apt-get dist-upgrade but it still the same, like it shown above
    can anyone help me to fix this problem ?

    First try to:

    Code:
    apt-get update
    to refresh your package lists, then try again and see what you get.

    Try
    Code:
    aptitude search libsnmp15
    My output is something like this:
    Code:
    i   libsnmp15                                                          - SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) library                            
    p   libsnmp15-dbg                                                      - SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) library debug
    Now reinstall these (or in your case some more packages).
    Code:
    aptitude reinstall libsnmp15
    .
    .
    .
    Now you should be able to
    Code:
    apt-get autoclean && apt-get autoremove && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    Be cafeful when using autoclean and autoremove cause I don't know what else you did to your system, you might end up removing useful packages. Good luck.

    You too have been mixing your repositories in sources.list ...and have screwed up your Kali install.

    thanks dude it's all work, but when the dpkg is preparing for preconfiguring packages it show the same

    Code:
    Setting up initscripts (2.88dsf-43) ...
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: script checkroot.sh: service mtab already provided!
    insserv: exiting now!
    update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header
    dpkg: error processing initscripts (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     initscripts
    i think we have 2 problems here the broken dpkg and the initscripts error and we haven't fix the initscripts problem. sorry for more asking
