    Kali on Windows 10 subsystem for linux

    I am able to install everything following the steps from the Kali website. https://www.kali.org/tutorials/kali-...tem-for-linux/
    The first 2 portions are my pc specs. Once I try to update i get the errors below. I added screenshots as well. I am not sure which version the subsystem downloads, but the issue is with the update or trying to install any software. I get the same error.


    Hardware:

    Intel Core i7-6700K 8m Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz
    MSI Z170A Gaming M7 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI Sata 6gb usb 301 atx intel motherboard
    WD Black 6TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive
    Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX water/liquid cpu cooler
    Corsair Axi series Ax1200i 1200w
    Samsung 950 ori m.2 512 gb pci-express 3.0 sd
    G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB ddr4 2133

    OS:

    Windows 10 pro
    Eset AV


    Error:

    PS C:\WSL-Distribution-Switcher-master> bash

    I'm having the same issue

    W: http: aptMethod::Configuration: could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument

    For the error "Temporary failure resolving 'http.kali.org'" you need to modify your resolv.conf to point to a public DNS server such as 8.8.8.8.

    echo nameserver 8.8.8.8 > /etc/resolv.conf

    I'm facing a similar problem. I just installed Kali WSL and I'm unable to update/upgrade it due an error with an expired key.
    I tried to update the key, but I can't because the GNUPG isn't installed, then I tried to install GNUPG, but it broke the system (I had to reinstall it).
    Do anybody know how to bypass this issue?

    and then, if I execute the following, my system get broken:

    Any ideas?

    Hello Bigbiz! Thanks for you reply!

    Actually I had already tried that... But it gave me the following output:

    root@host:/# apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 7D8D0BF6
    E: gnupg, gnupg2 and gnupg1 do not seem to be installed, but one of them is required for this operation

    So then I tried to install gnupg, but it generates a lot of errors (due dependencies problems) and broke my WLS and I need reinstall it (three times ).
    Do you know if is there other way to install gnupg for Kali WLS? I mean, I know there is, but I don't know how.

    Hi all,

    My issue is when I try to use python to get the kali pre-built docker. Here's a paste of the error and a list (ls) to ensure that get-prebuilt.py is in the directory.


    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32\WSL-Distribution-Switcher> python get-prebuilt.py kalilinux/kali-linux-docker
    (null): can't open file 'get-prebuilt.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

    Hey SysF41L3r,

    I had the same issue you did. I found this fix:

    wget http://http.kali.org/kali/pool/main/...2018.1_all.deb
    apt install ./kali-archive-keyring_2018.1_all.deb


    Hope this works for you as well!

    Kali on Windows 10 subsystem for linux

    So I have followed the installation instructions which were pretty straight forward in terms of enabling WSL and after restarting actually installing Kali from the Windows 10 store. All fine and dandy right? Nope, wrong! The one thing I have always had a major pet hate and issue with when it comes to things like this is it not being fully tested before rolled out or preparing simple instructions for what to do with you encounter what it seems a lot of people are encountering right now which is a trove of error messages for example let's just take the first couple of very easy steps.

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    What error does this throw? The following:

    W: http: aptMethod::Configuration: could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument
    W: http: aptMethod::Configuration: could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument

    Obviously you get this twice when typing in both of the simple apt-get commands and yes before some smart guy comes along and says "oh but you have to put SUDO at the beginning" - already done that too so save ya breath!

    Move on to the next steps from the oh so simple tutorial:

    apt-get install metasploit-framework

    Again errors:

    W: http: aptMethod::Configuration: could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument
    W: http: aptMethod::Configuration: could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    Oh and finally for installing the Xfce4? Get a load of this:

    Resolving kali.sh (kali.sh)... 45.79.158.143
    Connecting to kali.sh (kali.sh)|45.79.158.143|:443... connected.
    ERROR: The certificate of ‘kali.sh’ is not trusted.
    ERROR: The certificate of ‘kali.sh’ hasn't got a known issuer.

    Fresh install of the Kali image from Windows 10 Store so no other commands or anything have been input just the simple set up of username and password.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

    Anyone wanna pitch in with some actual useful tutorial or answers to these issues? I can't be the only one that is having them and someone somewhere must know how to get over them? Christ if it is this difficult just to get Kali Linux up and running so you can use the GNU and tools, they might as well just give it up now and pack in all these ideas of running on WSL.

    Don't roll things out if you can't bring a fully working, fairly simple to install package or idea to the table because to me that is like the boss saying "Gary got that big pres tomorrow, you got 18 hours to come up with something good and it better work" only for the said employee to come rolling into the presentation trying to dazzle all the corporate heads with jargon knowing full well he don't have nothing that actually works.

    Will things work 100% **** no, that would mean perfection and that isn't possible in this day and age even now, however 95% working now that is achievable if people actually bother to test things thoroughly first instead of trying for weeks on end to get Microsoft to let him have it on Windows Store and the basic bash works but everything else doesn't!

    Launch Kali WSL via an Administrative command prompt in Windows. I had the same issues until I ran an elevated command prompt in windows to launch Kali.

    Ultimately, I uninstalled the WSL because it was simply too slow to be functional even for mundane task for me. I just wanted to run a bare bones Kali with libreoffice on it for my Windows 10 machine, but it couldn't even keep up with my typing. Given, I'm not running the highest spec-ed machine, but I don't have that kind of lag in Windows 10 nor when I install Kali directly.

    There seems to be an issue with the seccomp policy in WSL. It shows a warning "W: http: aptMethod::Configuration: could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument", which is not an error. The current workaround is to execute the following command:

    echo 'apt::sandbox::seccomp "false";'> /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/999seccomp

    Thanks to R3dB0b. This was originally posted on GitHub.
