    apt-get upgrade stuck in loop downloading metasploit-framework

    Hello Kali gurus!

    I downloaded the VirtualBox binaries (Kali-Linux-2017.1-vm-amd64.7z) and fired it up in VirtualBox. The first thing I did after logging on is run the standard apt-get commands:
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get -V upgrade
    Unfortunately, it appears that apt-get is stuck in a look and continuously trying to download the metasploit framework

    Code:
    803 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 73 not upgraded.
    Need to get 548 MB/924 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 117 MB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

    Would anyone have any idea what is going on here? Here is the sources.list (which is the standard configuration)
    Code:
    root@kali:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    # 
    
    # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2017.1 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20170416-02:08]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free
    
    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2017.1 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20170416-02:08]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free
    
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    # deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    I already ran apt-get autoremove && apt-get autoclean which made no difference.

    Thanks!

    So, the update here worked normally but...

    Try it: apt update ; apt full-upgrade -y ; apt autoremove -y


    If it does not work you can try it:
    https://pastebin.com/5GjWs5Mw

    And run the commands again.

    Maybe it can be a mirror bug.
