    exploitdb not updating

    Hi all,

    So I've had this issue for the past 2 days now where, running a dist-upgrade, the packages start getting download but when it gets to the exploitdb package, it fails the download and gets stuck in a loop of trying to download it over and over again.
    I've checked the repository and also navigated to it manually so I can manually download the .deb file and install it myself, but even then using a wget to download it, it fails and then tries to download it over and over again. I went to my Home directory and funnily enough, It still saved the .deb file so I tried to install it using dpkg, but I get an "Unexpected end of input" error when running through the install.

    I have the main repository in my sources.list, deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free, but I'm not sure if there is any other repository I can use to download it.

    Is anyone else having this issue? Is it just me or is the .deb file on the repository corrupt?

    Regards,

    IRO

    Your ISP (or network proxy) might be subjecting downloaded files to AV scanning. Try using a different network to complete this download in order to confirm this suspicion.

    Tried it on 2 different networks and still no luck, i've never had this problem before either so don't think it's an AV or something blocking it.
