    I got some stuff missing when instaled Kali Linux 2020.2 update

    Hello, I have some things missing after i tryed to update from 2019.3 to the latest version which at this time is 2020.2 so the output below

    root@kali:~# apt upgrade -y

    Setting up kali-desktop-base (2020.2.3) ...
    update-alternatives: error: alternative path /usr/share/desktop-base/kali-theme/wallpaper/contents/images/3840x2160.png doesn't exist
    dpkg: error processing package kali-desktop-base (--configure):
    installed kali-desktop-base package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 2
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    kali-desktop-base
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    root@kali:~#

    so how do I get the missing parts? i don't want to reinstal because that would meen i have to reconfigure everything. I am working on vm .

    is there anyway to re initiate the update again? i am not sure why i didin't got all the files so yeah...
    going back to the screenshot is not an option...
    Thanks for help

    Hello

    I create manual the "images" folder into path "/usr/share/desktop-base/kali-theme/wallpaper/contents" and then with vim a file with name "3840x2160.png". After that rerun "apt update" and "apt dist-upgrade" and works
