    It is working for me too now! However I am just new to Linux Kali.... and earlier my source list contained some sites for some Taiwan.... and after running apt-get update command and rebooted the system the whole system was damaged and I was not able to see the Linux coming.... I reinstallled the same and tried to figure out what went wrong and came to know about source list.... after changing lot of times it was showing same taiwan thing again and again.... then I used the above posted http://repo.kali.org/kali.... Just have this question is it safe now?

    There should only be one entry of repository in your sources.list. Multiple entries or duplicate entries can make kali crash again. The repository shown in this thread is official kali repo. Make sure that all other links in your sources.list are commented out using #.

    The one from taiwan is the kali linux mirror set up by volunteers. Mirrors are closest to your geographical region and they reduce latency.

    repo.kali.org was working absolutely fine for me. But for the last week or two, it prompts that its forbidden. So I edited my sources.lst file to http.kali.org and I am back to slow upgrades Am I the only one facing this ?

    I have been trying daily. But no success no far. repo not working. It throws error "403 Forbidden [IP: 144.217.77.182 80]". I am quite sure there is no firewall on my network preventing me reaching repo as i have tried from two different networks.

    I'd work my way down this list:

    http://http.kali.org/README.mirrorlist

    and go with the fastest.

    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free


    use:
    deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    Bro I tried that but when I run apt-get upgrade after that it still seems to be pretty slow (40kb/s)...😐

    UPDATE 1:

    When I do this there seems to be no installation at all.
    It shows that I've got 0 packages installed.
    What may I do?

    UPDATE 2:
    If none of those tricks work like it did to me do this...

    Change the http part in "http://http.kali.org/kali"
    to "https://http.kali.org/kali"

    Select a mirror from here and keep the fastest one.

    http://http.kali.org/README.mirrorlist

    Comment other entries before adding a mirror. There should only be one repository active at a time.
