Thread: upgrading to kali 1.0.5 not working with apt-get dist-upgrade

    Exclamation upgrading to kali 1.0.5 not working with apt-get dist-upgrade

    HI guys

    one of the reasons i switched to kali is to be able to upgrade without reinstalling the distro .

    I'm trying to upgrade kali to the latest version with these commands

    apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

    I can see that some of the software are updated when their updates are available . but for the whole distro it doesn't show anything that newly released with it .

    for example in the change log of ver 1.0.5 there a GNU radio app in wireless attacks tab . but I can't see it here

    when I do lsb_release -a I get this
    Code:
    Distributor ID:	Debian
    Description:	Debian GNU/Linux Kali Linux 1.0
    Release:	Kali Linux 1.0
    Codename:	n/a
    so apparently after many upgrade I'm still on ver 1.0
    I checked the source list it'll normal .
    please how can I fix this I looked for a solution enough I didn't get any .

    I've run into this issue as well.

    Try adding
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    to /etc/apt/sources.list

    Check your repos first, make sure they are the ones you need:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free

    Then do this:
    aptitude safe-upgrade

    It will update, then repeat the process to make sure no new package version came up: aptitude safe-upgrade.

    If nothing new, go ahead and do the rest:
    aptitude full-upgrade

    Then just reboot.

    Luck.

    Please read the documantation: http://docs.kali.org/general-use/kal...t-repositories

    Read carefully the paragraph in red letters.

    I do not know why are you using so many url's. You just need the ones the documantation explains about.

    For whats its worth. I downloaded and install the current version of Kali (kali-linux-1.0.5-emd64.iso) into a VM earlier today.
    I did all the normal updates and dist-upgrades, and then did all the commands listed so far in this thread.
    I also added all the sources in the main documentation page and included Bleeding Edge sources too.

    My lsb_release -a still shows Version 1.0

    Not all of the new tools were added to the default iso as it helps us keep the iso smaller while still having all the core tools. You will need to apt-get the ones you want manually.

    As a matter of fact, the kali version is 1.0(5), so I guess the output of lsb_release and the issue command will output version 1.0.

    I remember when I upgraded from squeeze to wheezy (stable to testing) and from wheezy to Jessie from (stable to testing), only then the lsb command as well as "cat /etc/issue.net" will output the Testing version as wheezy and jessie accordingly, this is when sid was moved to testing and testing to stable.

    So I guess there is nothing wrong with the versions since we all are still working with version 1.0, either is 1.0.5, 1.0.6, 1.0.7, 1.0.x..Still version 1.0.

    When Kali release version 2.0, if any, then the commands will output the new version.

    By the way, personally, the sensible matter is the content of kali as to packages versions.

    Luck.

    I upgraded today and immediately after upgrading, I got a good version response. I have not tried after rebooting though.
