    Exclamation repository's error

    I have looked all over and found many posts on this error and tried many many things but still to no avail so pleas help me, I apologize in advance if I make a mistake.
    sudo apt-get update[sudo] password for kali: 
    Ign:1 InRelease
    Err:2 kali-rolling InRelease
      Could not resolve ''
    Err:3 Release
      404  Not Found [IP: 443]
    Reading package lists... Done
    E: The repository ' Release' does not have a Release file.
    N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    eb kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb-src kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb main contrib non-free
    #deb-src main contrib non-free
    (I would put the keys here but your darn forum won't let me open another page so I can find where to find them)

    You're not alone, but I'll be damned if I can figure out what's going on. I just installed the latest Kali for Raspberry Pi on a Pi 3 and I can't update it because of this error. But I have two other Pis with Kali, and an x86_64 Docker container I use interactively, and all of those update just fine. So I'm completely at a loss as to what's not being found and why. I assume it's a repo problem that will eventually get fixed - or so I hope.

  3. thank you very mutch

    Someone pointed out the error in another thread. Those deb (and deb-src, if you need it) lines should look like this:
    deb kali-rolling main contrib non-free
    deb-src kali-rolling main contrib non-free
