    Unhappy Help!! kali rolling repositories does not have release file

    im newbie from linux and im two days stuck with

    Code:
     apt-get update

    here's my 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
    and here's the error.

    Code:
    W: The repository 'http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling Release' does not have a Release file.
    N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    E: Failed to fetch http://http.kali.org/kali/dists/kali-rolling/main/binary-amd64/Packages  Connection failed
    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    here's my uname

    Code:
    Linux kali 4.6.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.4-1kali1 (2016-07-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    im not using virtual box nor vmware. im using a dual boot laptop

    i would like to use the fluxion that is why i install a kali rolling to my laptop.

    thanks in advance

    Using kali sana 2.0 repositories in kali rolling what do you expect what should've happened? You have added manually without reading kali linux documentation. Avoid these mistakes else you will crash your kernel.

    You are supposed to change kali linux repositories. They are incorrect and they may crash your kernel. Look in kali linux documentation and copy those repositories for kali-rolling.

    You mean VPN was the cause of the problem or solution?

    yep. i changed it into

    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

    but still having the same error.

    when i ping http.kali.org or 192.99.200.113 i don't get any response. so i think the internet connection was the problem. tried to check where the ip was located. and its from canada. so i used vpn using canada server. when i try it again. it works.

    It is still incorrect.

    See this one and compare it with yours.
    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
