    Crazy errors with apt-get update

    I was trying to run apt-get update for some reason (I can't remember why now) and it threw all these errors:
    Code:
    Get:1 http://http.kali.org/kali sana InRelease [399 B]                         
    Get:2 http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates InRelease [399 B]
    Err:1 http://http.kali.org/kali sana InRelease
      Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)
    Err:2 http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates InRelease
      Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)
    Fetched 399 B in 29s (13 B/s)    
    Reading package lists... Done
    W: Failed to fetch http://http.kali.org/kali/dists/sana/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)
    W: Failed to fetch http://security.kali.org/kali-security/dists/sana/updates/InRelease  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Any idea what the problem is? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    What version of Kali are you running? Also what are the repositories in sources.list?

    Sorry, I found out that the wifi network I was using was blocking me from connecting to repositories, and that's what the issue was. Sorry, and thanks!

    This tweet will help:

    Kali Linux

    @kalilinux

    If you donít update Kali regularly (*cough*), then your archive-keyring package is outdated, and youíll get key mismatches when working with our repositories. Sucks for you, but at least you can manually update the new key :

    wget -q -O - https://archive.kali.org/archive-key.asc | apt-key add

    In fact the problem for me was that I just pre-install Kali to a new hard disk and decided to use official Kali 2017.3 iso, not the weekly builds...
