    Kali Linux Software New Notification Issue

    For some reason I am having an issue. When I lock the Kali Linux this software notification pops up

    Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 4.48.25 PM.jpg

    I went into the software updates and there appears to be no updates see here

    I was wondering if you have ran into this and do you know how to fix it?

    Terminal to "leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list
    edit these repos in with no # in front (erase everything and cursor to the beginning)

    deb http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    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
    deb https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib

    save file and close

    apt update
    apt update && apt full-upgrade

    then reboot

    This is what I see

    " #

    # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2017.2 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20170917-01:51]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free

    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2017.2 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20170917-01:51]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free

    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    # deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib "



    are you saying just to remove this line " deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib"

    The add these other lines in


    deb http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://old.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    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
    deb https://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib


    Then save, close, and do the other steps?

    Your answer is incorrect. There should be only one repository active in sources.list. Adding more repositories will break your OS.

    First fix your mistake, revert those changes you did to sources.list.

    Your sources.list should look like this:

    #

    # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2017.2 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20170917-01:51]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free

    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 2017.2 _Kali-rolling_ - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20170917-01:51]/ kali-rolling contrib main non-free

    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    # deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib


    Then run sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt dist-upgrade
