    Exclamation slow update and upgrade

    hey guys im new to kali, i installed it about two weeks ago,
    i had changed sources.list from
    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

    to
    deb http://archive-3.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://archive-3.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free.

    everything was working fine until 2nd feb when my key expired, my updates are slow, i updated the key but its very slow,
    i changed the sources.list back to
    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

    the download speed is in bytes per second, rarely it reaches 25 kbps,

    any fix for the same.

    i have installed from the 2017.2 amd official download .

    gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 7D8D0BF6
    after key update i got this:

    gpg: key ED444FF07D8D0BF6: 130 signatures not checked due to missing keys
    gpg: key ED444FF07D8D0BF6: "Kali Linux Repository <devel@kali.org>" not changed
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg: unchanged: 1

    please help me out

    check out the 2nd and 3td post by evasiv

    He suggest this command to be run

    Code:
    https://forums.kali.org/showthread.php?38858-apt-get-update-GPG-error-key-expired
    This will generate a new set of keys, when I did this it fixed the issue i had which was like what you got going on.

    There are other suggestions but this one is simple and works.

    Choose the fastest mirror from here: https://http.kali.org/README.mirrorlist

    Make sure to comment out all other repositories before adding a mirror in sources.list.

    No. I'm also forbidden to access the page when I visit it from browser. Looks like it is under maintenance.

    ross what does your sources.list show. Find it in
    /etc/apt/sources.list
    look like. Open to edit with gedit or your text editor. I just edit it with the sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list. If you do it that way then close it with Ctrl C then finish with y to save.

    I only got one in my sources.list
    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    not to freak you I already removed the top two for the cd

    Then try it all over again. I'm teling ya it needs to regenerate the keys. If not then yes u may have a bad install. But mine was the same issue and it never would generate anything until I put that link into the sources.list.
