    You can use nano as a text editor in console. Please make an effort to read up on Kali to find most of the answers t your questions. Also, best you read the forums rules and guidelines so that your posts are of better quality in the future.

    Gedit editor comes installed with kali light. Use this command to edit sources.list:

    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    try to do apt-get update from command line first if you didn't did it, and remember you can do anything in command line!

    apt-get update doesn't work with empty repositories.

    since he haven't open source.list, we can't know if it's empty or not ;-)
