    Question How to add old repositories on terminal?

    Hey everyone.
    How can I add old Kali repositories (Sana/Moto) via terminal, there are some applications still updated that are not on new repositories.
    I'm trying to add them on terminal, install and then remove. Some how I always get the same error..
    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 95, in <module>
        sp = SoftwareProperties(options=options)
      File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 109, in __init__
        self.reload_sourceslist()
      File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 599, in reload_sourceslist
        self.distro.get_sources(self.sourceslist)    
      File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 93, in get_sources
        (self.id, self.codename))
    aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Kali/kali-rolling
    And this is what I tried:
    Code:
    add-apt-repository ppa:pinta-maintainers/pinta-stable
    This is happening for every repository I try to add via terminal..
    Any ideas ??

    While it's not recommended, I'd edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

    The repositories are correct.
    Problem is when I install the application.
