    is there way to update Kali 2.0 light to full version of Kali ?

    My question is there some elegant way with few commands to update Kali Linux 64 bit Light 2.0 (0.8 GB iso) to
    full version of Kali Linux 64 bit 2.0 (3.1 GB iso)
    I did not search for this options much and I am just asking if it is possible.

    The file VPN.conf could not be read or does not contain recognised VPN connection information

    There is also the command:
    apt-get install kali-linux-all
    which will literally install All packages that are available for Kali...

    After searching around for about an hour, I found the issue. I didn't have the repositories set up correctly.

    Paste this into your /etc/apt/sources.list file:


    #regular repos
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free

    #source repos
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free


    Then, after you do that, do apt-get update and you will find the package you are looking for.
