    Question [SOLVED]No updates

    For the past 3 days, Kali Rolling 2016.2 has retrieved 0 updates via apt-get .
    Here is what I'm getting while trying to update,

    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y
    Ign:1 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease
    Hit:2 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable Release
    Hit:4 http://archive-7.kali.org/kali kali-rolling InRelease

    My /etc/apt/sources.list
    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    # For source package access, uncomment the following line
     deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    ( I've removed and added # on the last repo no changes)

    Also, sources.d folder only has one entry

    Code:
    [root:/etc/apt/sources.list.d]# ls   
    google-chrome.list
    I have done apt-get clean and autoclean, still same.

    Odd that it's looking for chrome ?


    Thanks for any input

    you should have in apt folder more files ".list" , one of them is pointing to chrome update repository .
    Every file in that directory with ".list" will be readed automatically by apt everytime you call for an update or upgrade .

    Thanks for reply,

    I did see that folder and was curious why there is only one ".list " file , which is google-chrome.list

    Code:
    [root:/etc/apt/sources.list.d]# ls 
    google-chrome.list
    Can you post a copy of yours ?

    I have the same issue. My apt folder doesn't contain any other *.list other than sources.list and there seem to be no updates since a couple of days.

    I just ran apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade, and there are updates available. Maybe the repos were just quiet for awhile?
