    Kali mini help - Missing packages. How to upgrade to full

    Hi all, I had just recently downloaded the full 32 bit iso and ran the live version to get a taste of Kali-I'm a newbie-I liked it and decided to install it on my harddisk, but had an installation error. I ended deciding to install the mini version instead, but now realize that it doesnt come with all the tools of the full installation and I have no idea how to simply download the missing tools rather than hunting down each package individually. Sorry if this seems like a dumb question but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you wish, you can grab the meta package of 'full' (apt-get install kali-linux-full) and it should pull all packages that comes with the standard install.
    root@kali~$ apt-cache search kali meta

    I must be missing something but the above is not working for me. I have tried several places to type it in but get errors each time.
