    Apt not working after fresh install of Kali

    Hey all,

    I just did a fresh install of Kali and I am having trouble installing packages through apt. I googled around but wasn't able to find anyone experincing the same issue.

    Everytime I try and run apt-get I receive the following error message:

    Code:
    root@wonked:/var/lib/dpkg# dpkg --configure -a
    dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
     conflicting diversions involving `/tions/kali-affdiskprint.desktop' or `/usr/share/applications/kali-affdiskprint.desktop.disabled-by-kali-menu'
    I looked in /var/lib/dpkg/available and /var/lib/dpkg/status but did not see anything relating to these packages. I also tried running apt-get clean and dpkg --configure -a but those didn't work either.

    It seems like something is corrupted but I don't have the experience nessecary to resolve this on my own. Any ideas of how I could go about fixing this would be greatly appriciated.

    Thanks!

    Apt not working after fresh install of Kali
    Can somebody give some tip what i should do if i write any function of apt and terminal show me :


    Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

    Can find anything on internet about that.!
