    Zenmap missing Kali Linux 2019.4

    Odd, in Kali Linux 2019.4 Zenmap appears to be missing. If I try and install it i get the following:
    apt-get install zenmap
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package zenmap is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    ndiff


    E: Package 'zenmap' has no installation candidate


    thanks in advance,
    GMF

    As zenmap was not being maintained upstream any longer we had to drop the package.

    Download the rpm from nmap and:
    To install Alien and necessary package, run this command
    $ sudo apt-get install alien dpkg-dev debhelper build-essential
    To convert a package from RPM to debian format, use this command:
    $ sudo alien packagename.rpm
    To install the package:
    $ sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb

    It should work then, but I haven't fully tested it yet etc.

    First download zenmap -> "Optional Zenmap GUI (all platforms): zenmap-7.80-1.noarch.rpm" from https://nmap.org/download.html
    Should be in your downloads folder.

    Then run these commands:

    apt-get update
    apt-get install alien


    Go to your downloads folder cd Downloads

    sudo alien "name of downloaded package.rpm"

    sudo dpkg -i "name of converted package.deb"


    zenmap

    Hi,
    I was having the same problem, I tried to follow the instructions, but still I continued to fail.
    Fortunately, I managed to solve it !!! In my case the problem was in the "Sources.list" file in the "apt" package.


    First, go to the
    file
    -> /etc /apt /sources.list

    open the file "sources.list" and ype the following lines:

    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stretch main
    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://old.kali.org/kali moto main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://old.kali.org/kali moto main non-free contrib

    Save and close the file.
    Then, at the terminal, run these commands:


    apt-get update
    apt-get install zenmap


    It worked for me, I hope I helped you!! Good luck!
