    Updating repository

    Hello there,
    Code:
    uname -a
    Linux abhi 4.12.0-kali2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.12.12-2kali1 (2017-09-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    I was updating my repository and got the error. Till yesterday it was running fine. I don't know what is the reason.

    i have following repositories in sources.list:
    Code:
    deb https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    deb-src https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    My error was:
    Code:
    apt-get update

    If i replace them with the http support repository than it works fine i.e
    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    However if i comment out the first one than it doesn't through any error.
    Code:
    #deb https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    deb-src https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib


    Any suggestion?
    Thanks

    I see you want to use https transport for repositories. You might have not configured it properly. Just by writing https doesn't start downloads from https channel.

    I had followed that guide step by step and till yesterday it was running good. I don't know how but what i am seeing now is that it is not throwing any error while updating. I did nothing.
    It is working fine now.

    Mirror closest to you might be down at that time. You should comment out the deb-src entry in your sources.list. The second link is only used by those who want to compile the packages themselves from their source. That's why deb-source. The first entry is used to download already compiled packages which are ready to be installed.

    As you have followed that guide you might have read there that having https repository doesn't add any noticeable increase in security. It only gives you false sense of security.

    Thank you for the information.
