Kali Rolling ISO doom

The first edition of Kali Linux Rolling, Kali 2016.1, was released more than a week ago. It marks the end of Kali Linux 2 and the beginning of a new release regime.

It’s still based on Debian Testing, so existing users don’t have to do anything special but run a few commands to upgrade from Kali Linux 2 to Kali Linux 2016.1. Aside from installation images for the GNOME 3 desktop, there are also installation images for the Light edition, which uses the Xfce desktop environment. And there are also ARM installation images.

If you’re an existing Kali 2 user, you can upgrade to Kali Rolling by running the commands given in the following code block.

  1. When will packet injection capabilities in 2016.1 be fixed for the Alfa usb wifi adapter that I purchased (per every single kali forum on the internet)? I feel like I wasted $30 for something that’s just sitting there….doing nothing.

  2. Errors were encountered while processing:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/samba-vfs-modules_2%3a4.4.3+dfsg-4_i386.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    what should i do?
    i get it when upgrading for 2.0 to rolling
