    apt update is returning "all packages are up to date" for 5 days w/o upgrading

    At first blush it sounds like it is working as it should, but it has been 5 days. Quite some time for all packages to stay up to date.

    root@kali:~# apt update

    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



    # This system was installed using small removable media
    # (e.g. netinst, live or single CD). The matching "deb cdrom"
    # entries were disabled at the end of the installation process.
    # For information about how to configure apt package sources,
    # see the sources.list(5) manual.

    I suppose that if this were an issue with the repository, I'd've thought I'd find something in my google searches, checking other linux forums

    The repos are currently "locked" for changes because of Blackhat/Defcon.

    Thank you. I was wondering if it might be something similar. Again, thank you
