    Your on Debian so the Ubuntu way won't always work. Try dpkg: warning: files list file for package 'x' missing

    Thanks for answer but Here
    for package in $(apt-get upgrade 2>&1 | grep "warning: files list file for package '" | grep -Po "[^'\n ]+'" | grep -Po "[^']+"); do apt-get install --reinstall "$package"; done
    On "$package" he mean i need to text the package name? I have this error now when i install or upgrade
    dpkg: warning: files list file for package 'python-ctypeslib' missing; assuming package has no files currently installed
    dpkg: warning: files list file for package 'python-ecdsa' missing; assuming package has no files currently installed

    If you installed Kali 2.0 and upgraded to Kali Rolling I can only suggest a fresh install of Kali Rolling.

    If it's a fresh install try reinstalling. Only thing I can think.
