    [SOLVED] Mingw-w64 on kali 4

    Hi everyone,

    Ran into a issue yesterday when trying to install Mingw-w64 on kali 4.13.0 adm64 (VMware version)
    As per download on https://www.offensive-security.com/k...mage-download/
    Managed to solve it so figured I share it with you all, should you run into a similar issue.

    The problem:
    When I tryed to install mingw-w64 I got the following error message:
    Code:
    root@kali:~# apt-get install mingw-w64 -y
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    The following additional packages will be installed:

    ---lots of errors 404  Not Found
    E: Failed to fetch http://http.kali.org/kali/pool/main/m/mingw-w64/mingw-w64_5.0.2-2_all.deb  404  Not Found
    E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
    Kali would return a 404 error, so I did as the line suggest and ran the update.

    After running apt-get update the following would happen:
    Code:
    root@kali:~# apt-get update
    Get:1 http://ftp1.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/kali kali-rolling InRelease [30.5 kB]
    Err:1 http://ftp1.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/kali kali-rolling InRelease

    W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.

    W: Failed to fetch http://http.kali.org/kali/dists/kali-rolling/InRelease  The following signatures were invalid: EXPKEYSIG ED444FF07D8D0BF6 Kali Linux Repository <devel@kali.org>
    W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    Turns out the keyring package is outdated.
    so running apt-get install mingw-w64 -y would just return the same 404 errors.

    The fix:
    Run the following command
    Code:
    root@kali:~# wget -q -O - https://archive.kali.org/archive-key.asc  | apt-key add
    OK
    root@kali:~# apt-get update

    Fetched 32.0 MB in 4s (6,864 kB/s)

    Now re-run the installation of mingw-w64 and it should succeed
    Code:
    root@kali:~# apt-get install mingw-w64 -y
