    Unhappy Kali Sana to Rolling update issue.

    Hello all,

    I've had issues with the migration from Kali 2.0 to Kali rolling 2016.1
    using the following command set

    cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list
    deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    When it nears completion the message I receive is:

    1957 upgraded, 548 newly installed, 95 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    Need to get 2,718 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 2,449 MB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y

    I try to continue but it aborts the install.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi! This error is usually thrown when Kali realizes there is a 'slower' internet connection (not always the case).

    Instead of doing 'apt-get upgrade', can you do 'apt-get dist-upgrade'?

    If that doesn't seem to work, you can wait 5 or so minutes before typing "Y" in the prompt which may fix the problem.

    EDIT: I recommend not upgrading to Kali Rolling simply because programs & applications are constantly updated which means more bugs can occur, which can only be fixed when updated again. But, if you know what you're doing, then go right ahead!

    If you were trying to update your live kali(usb) it wont work. In my experience, I could only do apt-get updates and install some packages using persistence but doing apt-get upgrade/dist-upgrade would usually stop after awhile.

    I succeeded by using apt-get dist update, followed by a apt-get upgrade. This had me up and rolling. Pulse audio doesn't like loading under root, however starting it through terminal works. The next reboot will tell me if modifying users via # adduser root pulse audio, sticks or not.
