    Exclamation Kali Linux ARM Images - Compressed data is corrupt

    I have downloaded Kali ARM image for ASUS Chromebook Flip and even though SHA256Sum provided at Kali Linux ARM Images are match:

    Code:
    $ sha256sum kali-2017.01-veyron.img.xz 
    5da758a4bbe3712bbac4b33547a0e025f87995198a95cfd6185b1a9cd7d6d95c  kali-2017.01-veyron.img.xz
    $
    compressed data is corrupt:

    Code:
    $ unxz --test kali-2017.01-veyron.img.xz 
    unxz: kali-2017.01-veyron.img.xz: Compressed data is corrupt
    $
    Please advise.

    Is there any ETA on when non-corrupted image would be available for download?

    Hey Alexus,

    Thanks for the report - despite the image corruption with --test, the image still worked, and tools like pixz were extracting it (what is used to create the image);

    That said, I've generated a new 2017.1.1 image and added unxz --test to one of the test suite that gets run when images are generated so that this doesn't occur in the future. They should be up on the mirrors now.

    If you have any more issues please let me know!

    Thank you for getting back to me, per your comment I gave it a try and it seems to be fine now:
