    Lightbulb /etc/apt/sources.list

    Hello, here is installed Kali 2.3 - but it is somehow closed off from update-server.

    In sources.list is written :

    deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib

    But this is somehow not accepted and apt-get update is ending with "temporary failure", it seems
    that name of kali-server is written wrong at and is then not connecting with Kali 2.3

    What should I do ? Is concerning server at moment down ? Should I wait, or should I re-type sources.list
    for Kali 2.3 ?

    Looks like the correct entry, but you can always verify at

    The repos might have been down then. I'm able to do apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade ok from my location.

    maybe try "deb kali-rolling main contrib non-free"?

    you wrote "non-free" and then "contrib". maybe that's the issue.
