    Smile I need help with a command for Kali Linux, the "apt-get"

    Hello to all.

    I use the last version of Kali Linux on Sunday
    August 14, ( Yes I don't know the current version of Kali Linux... ) My computer is in x64Bit.

    I have in front of me a problem of comprehension because
    I can't execute some basic commands like the "apt-get"...

    It's really annoying...

    I think I have the administrator rights with the command I have done which is: "sudo passwd root". But the command I have done is: "sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool".
    ( gnome-tweak-tool is an application that allows to make more aesthetic Kali Linux )
    I also tried some variants... with : "apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool".
    I run my commands in the root version of Kali Linux. ( I don't know if this information is useful but just in case )

    The apt-get command does not work for any application or extension installation...

    I thank you for your answer in advance;

    Thank you very much,

    Jim007o

    Before you can apt-get install anything you need to update the repositoiry

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get full upgrade -y

    Hello Fred Sheehan,
    I have already done this order... I should do it again just to make sure I did it right.
    After all, I have nothing to lose.




    Best regards,

    There is no gnome-tweak-tool listed in the repository.

    Code:
    apt search tweak tool
    *snip*
    gnome-tweaks/kali-rolling 42-beta-1 all
    tool to adjust advanced configuration settings in GNOME
    Is gnome-tweaks what you were trying to install?
