    Unhappy Cannot Update Kali - 111: Connection Refused

    When I try to update Kali, I get the following error message:

    root@kali:~# apt-get update
    Err:1 http://archive-7.kali.org/kali kali-rolling InRelease
    Could not connect to archive-7.kali.org:80 (209.126.116.149). - connect (111: Connection refused)
    Reading package lists... Done
    W: Failed to fetch http://http.kali.org/kali/dists/kali-rolling/InRelease Could not connect to archive-7.kali.org:80 (209.126.116.149). - connect (111: Connection refused)
    W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    It's done this for the last two days. Any issues with this mirror? I'm using the Kali 2016.1 virtual machine from kali.org.

    Thanks!

    Hmm, not that I can tell from my location. I'm able to update ok. Have you verified your internet connectivity from the host & VM?

    Unhappy

    Grid, Internet connectivity is not an issue- I can ping external IP addresses, browse websites, wget files, etc.

    I just tried again, and the issue still remains. I modified the hosts file temporarily to use the IP address of archive-4.kali.org, and it looked like it was working at first, but apparently, there are some parts of the archive-7 repo that are not present in archive-4 (?), so that did not work for me.

    I've even re-downloaded the 2016.1 VM, verified the hash was good, unzipped it, changed the password, verified Internet connectivity, and tried apt-get update and still have the same problem...

    Is it possible that the IP block I am coming from is being blocked / is being refused connections?

    That's what it seems like. I'd report this at bugs.kali.org
