    Kali Linux Repositories

    During my hard disk install I could not connect to my network. And had to select no at stage 8 'configure network mirrors'
    reading the warning that I won't be able to install packages from Kali repositories.
    Is there a way I can correct this after the install. Or will I have to reinstall again?

    Yes you can correct that issue after install. Please check out the documentation and search for updating your sources.list file.

    didn't download any updates.
    further searching in the FAQ and I noticed repo's were mentioned as

    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free

    the second one works fine
    Could a Mod please edit the link

    Dave,

    Try add this in your apt:

    deb http://http.kali.org/ /kali main contrib non-free
    deb http://http.kali.org/ /wheezy main contrib non-free
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main contrib non-free
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main/debian-installer
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-dev main contrib non-free
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main/debian-installer
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-bleeding-edge main

    Run: "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade"

    And tell us the result.

    Best regards!

    454 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 39 not upgraded.
    When i force to install the 39 not upgrade (apt-get dist-upgrade), my kali is going to error when starting up(fatal error), so i must reistall with the fresh kali.

    Adding the wheezy, and kali-dev repositories is NOT recommended AT ALL, and will most probably break your Kali installation sooner or later. The only repositories you need to have, are listed here, in the official documentation:

    I do not recommend this repos either and totally agree with muts. You need to check repos from kali, just 2 lines, that's it. Keep sources.list as clean as possible.

    You may end up breaking packages and have an unstable system.

    The kali repos section explicity show the repos. Follow the link that Muts posted.

    Luck...
