    Unhappy Could not wait for server -fd select (11: temporarily unavailable) [IP: 443]

    Hi , (I'm finding this a bit hard to explain so please ask me as many questions and I will provide the proper logs or whatever is needed)

    My raspberry pi 3b is having some very strange issues and after a couple days of googling and trying different things I still can't seem to figure it out.

    The result of uname -a
    Linux Kali 4.9.59-v7_Re4son-Kali-Pi+ #1 SMP Wed Feb 14 20:50:28 CST 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux

    so what's happening :

    every time I want to run a command (apt-get update, apt-get upgrade , apt-get install ... , etc.) the command runs but then it slows and the progress begins to stop , I found that the only way to get the install/update/upgrade to proceed the download is to reconnect the wifi (even though the wifi is supposedly still connected). If I don't reconnect the wifi then I will get the following error (almost like a timeout error?)

    E: Failed to fetch
    Could not wait for server -fd select (11: temporarily unavailable) [IP: 443]

    Some of the things I've done to try and solve the issue:
    apt-get clean
    set the power management off (iwconfig)
    run command -> echo "deb kali-rolling main non-free contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list

    Thank you in advance for any help

    t00tz, if you can, try to upgrade to the latest kernel - since we don't include the package in kali itself yet, we have builds of the debs on the nethunter github - you can find the latest release at - it might take a while to get them because they're big files, but the only file required is the raspberrypi-kernel_20180713-010442_armhf.deb for updating the kernel.

    Let me know if this helps your issue at all? You might want to download it using wget since wget will let you continue a download.
