    Unhappy Basic Kali system operations failed, error mesg attached

    Hello,

    I have strange problem on my Kali Linux. Long time all works correctly. Suddenly without any obvious cause when I run any basic task from terminal for example:
    Code:
    apt-get update
    or
    Code:
    apt-get upgrade
    I get this error:


    Code:
     **** Seccomp prevented execution of syscall 0000000041 on architecture amd64 ****
    and task is stopped.

    I use kali-rolling.

    Code:
    uname -a
    4.12.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.12.6-1kali6 (2017-08-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Can you help me please?

    @_defalt Thanks for reply.

    My /etc/apt/sources.list:

    Code:
    deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    
    deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian jessie contrib
    When I comment download.virtualbox.org apt-get is correctly done, but apt-get dist-upgrade shows this error:

    Code:
     **** Seccomp prevented execution of syscall 0000000029 on architecture amd64 ****
    E: Method http has died unexpectedly!
    What file in
    Code:
    /etc/apt/apt.conf.d
    can I use for add this?

    Code:
    APT::Sandbox::Seccomp::Allow {
        "socket";
    };

    Thanks all for help. The solution is:
    Code:
    echo 'apt::sandbox::seccomp "false";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/999seccomp
