    open terminal
    Then follow these commands:
    1. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list(it'll ask for password i.e., you use to login into your machine, enter that password).
    2. enter the text you want to, then hit 'CTRL+O' and hit enter simultaneously.
    3. hit 'CTRL+X' after that.
    4. Done.
    5. run 'apt update' and see the magic

    One more advice:
    add s in the first http variable like deb to get more downloading speed in terminal. Thanks me later!

    @kali:~/Desktop/JohnTheRipper$ cd /run
    @kali:/run$ ./ pdfpasswd>pdfpasswd.hash
    bash: pdfpasswd.hash: Permission denied
