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:

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

Turns out the keyring package is outdated.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

Now re-run the installation of mingw-w64 and it should succeed
