    Hello Everyone,

    I am running into the error below while trying to build the ISO on my Debian 10x64.

    P: Setting up cleanup function
    [2019-09-09 19:58:51] lb bootstrap_cache restore
    P: Restoring bootstrap stage from cache...
    [2019-09-09 19:58:51] lb bootstrap_debootstrap
    P: Begin bootstrapping system...
    P: If the following stage fails, the most likely cause of the problem is with your mirror configuration or a caching proxy.
    P: Running debootstrap (download-only)...
    E: specified keyring file (/usr/share/keyrings/kali-archive-keyring.gpg) not found
    P: Begin unmounting filesystems...
    P: Saving caches...
    chroot: failed to run command ‘/usr/bin/env’: No such file or directory
    Build of kali-rolling/default/amd64 live image failed (see build.log for details)

    direction on how to locate the required key rings i think would be great. can anyone give directions on how to download required files so I could commence with build?

    Thanks and regards,

    I am using Kali linux amd64 edition. I tried to create a custom iso but when I ran the apt-get command it complains about missing live-build and cdebootstrap packages. Please help.

    root@kali:~# apt-get install git live-build cdebootstrap
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree

    Package live-build 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

    E: Package 'live-build' has no installation candidate
    E: Unable to locate package cdebootstrap

    If the live system doesn't boot, there may be an issue specific to the ISO image. It's possible that the ISO wasn't created properly, or there's an error in the ISO itself. You can try creating a new ISO and see if that solves the problem. If you need more specific help, you can contact me at my personal page where there are smart applications that will help you somewhat.
    In any case, it can be helpful to gather more information about specific error messages or logs you see during installation and startup. This can help narrow down the root cause of the problem and allow for a more targeted solution.
