    Question Linux-image problems

    Hi

    First I want to tell you guys that I'm not that good with this Linux stuff... ( And I haven't found any other thread about just this issue)

    Issue /Problem
    When I try to install anything and/or do apt-get update I get this error

    ERROR

    The package linux-image-4.15.0-kali2-amd64 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.


    uname -r Output
    4.14.0-kali3-amd64


    Any help is appreciated.
    Links to threads with the same problem etc are welcome.

    Hmm, looks like you are running an older version of Kali. Kali 2018.2 runs on 4.16 kernel. Installing the latest version of Kali should fix the problem

    Normally, apt (or apt-get) would allow you to safely upgrade. Since that's not an option in your case, backup anything you need, then restore after reinstalling Kali. I think that will give you the most stable Kali system.

    I use Clonezilla to take an image of my Kali box before major upgrades, and do non-clone data backups as needed.

    Got it working now by doing a backup of my important stuff and then Reinstalling Kali on the PC. Thanks to everyone who have responded to this thread.
