    It's in the repos. You either have no repo configured (check /etc/apt/sources.list) or you forgot to run "apt update" first. Just FYI, after changing sources.list, always do apt update.

    The repo address can be found in the documentation. There is a post about it.

    There is documentation about it: https://docs.kali.org/general-use/ka...t-repositories

    I would also recommend checking out https://kali.training.
